Sheep + Wool Festival : A N I M A L S

Last Saturday I went to the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival with my weaving class. I never knew there were so many types of yarns or sheep! I was also surprised by the amount of people interested in weaving, knitting, spinning, crocheting and other fiber arts. It was really interesting to see the animal and then samples of their coats - like a specific lamb with their wool out as a sample so you could feel it. 

Check back tomorrow to see the yarn I explored at the festival
