What a fun festival. There was a good attendance and it was pretty spread out in the park. Lots of vendors from Colorado, NM, and the surrounding areas. Wool, mohair, alpaca, cashmere, yak, quviut and other varieties. Not the yarns you would normally find n a shop. Lots of roving and spinning tools too. I was almost hyperventilating. All beautiful. So much yarn--so little money and time. I'll dream about knitting tonight after I work on my applique quilt.
This is man spinning wool into yarn.
To get the angora, you comb the bunny, card it and spin in into yarn. Gee I could probably get the same result by combing Bentley. They are soft and sweet and he's soft and sweet.. The owners of the bunnies were holding them in their laps and asking everyone to come pet the bunny. So soft.
