Faune Yerby Spins Local Wool into Sophisticated, Eco-Conscious Designs
Yerby loves the idea of being able to find creative ways to re-use what others might consider trash. She stated, “There’s tons of stuff you can recycle out there. You just have to find it.” While some young people might consider wool and knitting to be archaic, Yerby has found a way to transform traditional, eco-friendly techniques and materials into modern looks. Her role as both a designer and a source for consciously processed materials, add to the panorama of innovative people who are adapting their practices to better serve the environment and all those involved in the process.
