Mary Egbert

Mary's passion for all things fiber began when she and her husband had a herd of 25 alpacas. Her interests quickly expanded to wools and silks. Her passion for research led her to create a tool to help spinners spin a balanced yarn and delve deep into the world of scouring wool.

Mary is owner of Camaj Fiber Arts, the author of the best selling book on scouring fibers, The Art of Washing Wool, Mohair and Alpaca. She is the creator of the Eszee Twist Tool and runs the monthly fiber box called The Spinning Box.

Mary has also traveled the country teaching fiber prep and scouring to many fiber loving folk. Her articles on fiber prep, spinning, small business success secrets and scouring can be seen in magazines such as Spin Off, Ply Away, TinyStudio and has had her photography published in Alpaca Magazine.

Mary lives in Sunny Florida with her husband, has three outstanding daughters and seven amazing grandchildren.
