Whispirit is a family owned small fabric and apparel business created by Sandy and Lee Liggett.
Sandy and Lee have been married for 25 years and during that time raised two boys and practiced law in Houston and New Mexico. They laugh at how much of their lives they have been in uncharted waters. That’s what exhilarated them in their legal careers and how they raised their kids. They moved to New Mexico hoping to find encore careers that would permit them to create something new. And, they think they have. Their efforts to create fabric and apparel here in the US out of US alpaca simply has no footprint to follow.
Their vision for Whispirit began to take shape when they discovered a mechanized needle felting piece of equipment that would permit them to make yards of fabric. They learned how to make the fabric drapy, sheer and very light weight. Putting together things they knew, seeking out people that work and create in some similar ways or who had skills and talents they lacked. Whispirit creations began to emerge.
They both hung up their legal spurs in order to make Whispirit a reality.
