OK, so my obsession with alpacas, and fiber animals in general, just keeps growing. Check out this cool event in upstate New York this weekend, April 27 and 28: the Washington County Fiber Tour. It’s like a yarn crawl of fiber farms. Visitors will get to see and interact (!!) with all kinds of fiber animals including cashmere and angora goats, angora rabbits, sheep, and alpacas on this seventeen farm tour. Not only that, but there will be lots of babies and young’ns! Farms will offer shearing, spinning and weaving demonstrations. Yarns, rovings, woven and knitted items will be available for sale.
Mike (my husband the map lover) has set up a really cool interactive map with information about the farms on the tour for your use.
