SoCK Meeting – Independence Fiber Mill

Did you know that there is a fiber mill just 90 minutes from Cypress?  There is!  Come tour one of the few fiber mills in Texas and learn how commercial yarn is spun, from fleece to final product.  And it being spring, there just may be baby goats that need some cuddling.  The tour includes both the mill and the dye shed (and the baby goats) and an opportunity to purchase yarn spun by the mill. 

All those wishing to carpool to Independence Farmstead Fiber Mill should meet at the Starbucks at 25615 Hwy 290 in Cypress by 8:30 am.  The drive to the mill is approximately 1 hour.  RSVP is not necessary but if you would like to RSVP, here is the FB link to the carpooling information.
