MAVWA HISTORY and MISSION
In the early 80's Christian Community Services in Alamosa, CO created the Wool Products Association, which was incorporated as the Mountain and Valley Wool Association (MAVWA) in 1983. The original goal was to provide networking and educational support for wool producers and crafts people of the Upper Rio Grande region of southern Colorado and northern New Mexico. MAVWA's definition of wool later expanded to include the wool or hair of any animal, and its sphere of influence eventually expanded to include all of Colorado, New Mexico, and Texas. The MAVWA mission today is the same as it always has been: to support our region's animal fiber industry. MAVWA provides its members with marketing, advertising, networking, and educational opportunities via: the Taos Wool Festival, a website (taoswoolfestival.org), a Wool Festival program / MAVWA directory, newsletters sent to the membership, and classes.

In the Fall of 2016, MAVWA was granted non-profit status and is now a 501c3 organization.
