About Us

Since 2004, Wild Fibers Magazine has been featuring stories about the fiber industry from around the world with a focus on culture and environment. Wild Fibers editor, Linda Cortright, also began leading small group tours to spectacular but often remote destinations, from the Russian Arctic to India’s High Himalayas.

In 2015, Wild Fibers opened the first and only cashmere spinning center in the High Himalayas, providing much needed financial support to more than 130 semi-nomadic women. Products from the center are featured on the website and at festivals.

Owing to Wild Fibers global reach, Wild Fibers also offers a boutique line of handmade garments, jewelry and basketry directly sourced from the artisan.

Unable to travel as the result of the pandemic, Wild Fibers published its first book in November 2020, The Eye of Fiber, An Uncommon Story from the Around the World.

We look forward to getting back on the road in 2022 with scheduled tours to Antarctica, Bhutan, Scotland, Alaska, and the Mekong River.

About Us

We are an independent press and work from our home-based studios at the foot of the Colorado Rocky Mountains.

Joanna’s work has been published in Knitty, Piecework, Jane Austen Knits, Spin-Off, Sockupied, and Knitting Traditions magazines, as well as Petite Purls and Rhythm of the Home. She has a BA in Literature from Drew University and has greatly enjoyed writing the stories and designing the knitting and sewing patterns for their children’s books.

Eric has a BFA in commercial design from Kutztown University. After working for two decades as signwriter, muralist, and graphic artist, he has really enjoyed returning to his childhood love of drawing by illustrating Phoebe’s Sweater, Freddie’s Blanket, Phoebe’s Birthday, and Henry’s Hat.

Eric and Joanna live in Colorado with their three children, who offer continual inspiration for their stories. Their work has been reviewed in Yarn Market News, Living Crafts, Knitty, Stitch, Piecework, Interweave Knits, Knit ‘N Style, Knitting Today, Model Life, and Knitcircus magazines.
