The Tempestry Project is personal and collaborative fiber art, environmental awareness, and climate activism via data representation all rolled into a sprawling community of friends, artists, crafters, teachers, scientists, activists, nature lovers, and more.

One of the ongoing problems inherent in discussions about climate change is the vast scale of the conversation. The Tempestry Project’s goal is to scale this down into something that is accurate, tangible, relatable, and beautiful. Tempestries blend fiber art with temperature data to create a bridge between global climate and our own personal experiences through knitted, crocheted, and woven temperature tapestries, or ‘Tempestries.’ A collection of Tempestries showing different years for a single location creates a powerful visual representation of changing temperatures over time.

This particular Tempestry Collection is the brainchild of Erika Zambello, who coordinated with crafters around the country to make and photograph this beautiful work. Each park (over 50 parks) in the collection is represented by two Original Tempestries, one showing daily high temperatures for 2016 in celebration of the National Park System’s centennial anniversary and one for either 50 or 100 years prior (usually).

Each piece was made with so much love for our park system, and together this collection embraces the deep and abiding beauty inherent in our natural world – and the dangers that threaten it.

A portion of book sales goes to the National Parks Conservation Association.

(this book is not designed to be a pattern book but a merging of our love of fiber and the environment through visual representation)

Return Policy

To protect you from odd dye lots, odors, or allergens, yarn may not be returned. We want to be sure that each skein you get has come direct from the dyer, to the shop to you. Full priced items other than yarn may be exchanged for shop credit if Fuzzy Goat receives the item within 2 weeks of when you received the item. 

To be eligible for an exchange, there must be proof of purchase, your item must be unused and in the same condition that you received it. It must also be in the original packaging and in re-saleable condition when Fuzzy Goat receives it. Shop credit will be for the items purchased and not inclusive of shipping. We recommend insuring your package as we cannot credit returns for items that do not arrive.

If you are requesting to cancel an order, within two hours of your order and we have not wound your yarn and it has not yet reached our Fulfillment Maven, we will issue you shop credit for your whole order. (We incur quite a few non-refundable fees from our merchant services as soon as your order is placed)

Thanks for your understanding.
