This year the Fiber Farmers Day vendors will be limited to farmers in compliance with the Farmer's Market operating restrictions in the Covid-19 pandemic.
Fiber and textile art enthusiasts can plunge their hands into luscious locally raised alpaca, sheep or mohair fleeces; fondle yarns and products produced from them; and learn how to incorporate more local fibers into your knitting, spinning, weaving, felting or crocheting projects. It is presented by Local Cloth Inc. and will feature
- Fiber animals
- Locally raised raw fleeces
- Roving, spun and dyed yarn
- Dye plants
Demonstrations in shearing, fiber preparation, weaving, spinning and knitting will be going on all day
So come meet your local Fiber Farmers
This event is designed to educate the public about local fiber, allow the purchase of local animal fibers, and provide local resources for turning that fleece into the roving, yarn or cloth they need.
Thank you to WNC Communities for being the Sponsor of Fiber Farmers Day!
