When you visit Fiber Festival each year, do you visit the animals who produce the fiber? The Animal Barns are full of many farms who bring some of their amazing fiber producers to festival for you to see and quite often for you to buy. The best part is that you have an opportunity to learn about the animal that the fleece you buy comes from. Here are a few of the gorgeous sheep, goats, rabbits and alpacas that were a part of our 2010 festival.
Make sure that you visit all of the barns at Fiber Fest 2011 including the animal barns. Ask questions. Learn about the breed and the breeders. The farms that raise these animals are a wealth of knowledge to fiber artists. Stop by their booths and let them know how much you enjoy the products created from their animals. You may even get to see the actual animal that produced the roving or yarn you just purchased.
