The Northern England Fibreshed was originally founded by Justine Aldersey-Williams as the North West England Fibreshed becoming an official member of the Fibershed Affiliate Network in March 2020. It evolved in collaboration with Anita Radini and Mark Palmer (based in the North East) into a combined Northern England Fibreshed in March 2023.

Our goal is to identify, galvanise and promote a community of bioregional fibre and dye professionals interested in transitioning from extractive textile manufacturing processes to more regenerative systems. This might include farmers, spinners, weavers, dyers, educators, makers and manufacturers.
