West Virginia's Wild and Wooly Fiber Festival

We visited West Virginia's Wild and Wooly Fiber Festival at the WVU Reedsville Arena on Saturday.  There were several vendors selling wool and wool products, a fleece competition, a local 4-H club selling food, and there were a lot of alpacas... so cute, so curious.

Sarah Beamer was there with her Kerry Hill sheep and in spite of a broken foot gave great shearing demonstrations.

Several farms brought angora goats.

We visited with the folks at the Peavine Hollow Farm booth, and watched a noisy angora goat shearing demonstration.  Lena bought some beautiful gold and blue mohair locks. 

And we bought this...

  1. I don't usually 'go' for dogs, but am intrigued as to the breed. What is he / she ? Guess it will be a working dog.
