(Community Experience Director)
Alejandra is an advocate for the slow fashion movement, the use of natural fibers and botanical dyes, and the raising of fiber animals utilizing humane and compassionate practices. She is the founder of A Woolen Forest whose focus is on wool crafts, natural dyeing, sustainable practices, and animal welfare. Alejandra raises English and French Angora rabbits in colonies, a practice in which the rabbits live together in large communal spaces built to resemble their natural environment, have access to unlimited hay, and are fed herbs & wild greens to encourage their natural foraging instincts. Their wool is gathered multiple times a year and used for a number of wool crafts including spinning, knitting, weaving, and needle felting. In addition to her rabbit colonies, Alejandra keeps a vegetable, flower, and botanical dye garden. It is Alejandra’s hope that in the near future, she will be able to expand her fiber forest to welcome her first flock of sheep.
