Tierra Wools

Outside the store the houses and landscape is charming nestled in the mountains of the Sangre De Christos. This image has a Snapart2 Pastel filter applied.

Tierra Wools is a weaver, spinner, grower owned company in Los Ojos, New Mexico, a remote mountain town. We stopped here to photograph whatever presented. I had my 105 macro mounted on my camera and went inside the store into the spinning workshop area. Unfortunately there were no weavers working, but the yarns and looms were interesting. The wool used here is from the Churro Sheep a Spanish introduced sheep that has become endangered and are now being raised by breeders for their wool.The products they sell are beautiful! Check out their site on the link above!
