What Is Distinctive And Authentic To The Character Of The Region
The Southern Adirondack Region boosts a number of sheep, alpaca, llama, and angora goat (they make mohair) farms, known for their high quality fleece production. Battenkill Fibers pays a fair price for fibers sourced from these family-owned farms. We insure equitable evaluation of fiber quality, we offer diverse employment opportunities, and we make environmentally responsible choices in all aspects of our procurement, processing and distribution.
