Made in USA Wool: CNBC Features Farm2Fashion September 19 2014
We are pleased that Farm2Fashion was featured on the CNBC Small Business website in the article: ‘Crazy’ Innovative: How One Entrepreneur is Reviving ‘Made in USA’ Wool. The story focuses on specialty American wool and yarn producers, with an emphasis on innovative small to mid-sized companies dedicated to the American Made Movement.
Farm2Fashion is a small apparel maker devoted to turning American wool into sweaters, throws, blankets and other accessories. Founder of farm2fashion Laurie Perrone, based in Cornwall, N.Y., said she wanted to support independent American farmers and crafts people. Her raw materials also come from Pennsylvania—not abroad. By sourcing locally, Perrone said she's able to design and react immediately to customer and inventory needs. "We're really answering the speed-to-market problem," she said.
