When is the last time you petted an alpaca, coddled a llama, stroked a sheep…? Well, this weekend the Washington County Fiber Tour is happening once again and it must be popular because this is the 18th annual tour! It’s fun and educational. There are some 35 demonstrations planned where you’ll learn about shearing, spinning, dyeing, weaving and also be able to purchase raw yarn for your own project or beautifully unique handmade items (just in time for Mother’s Day perhaps?) But first, you’ll need a map, so you can plan your strategy and visit as many farms as you like in Granville, Fort Ann, Argyle, West Hebron and throughout the Battenkill Valley. Visit www.washingtoncountryfibertour.org and be sure to take the kids!
