About this event

Since the early 1800s, Washington County has been a welcoming home for wool and other fiber production. During each day of the tour, you can visit alpacas, bunnies, goats, sheep and lambs, llamas, and more - on the farm; and meet the farmers and their families. This self-guided tour of ten farms fiber mills is free and open to the public. Farms are open both days from 10:00AM - 4:00PM unless otherwise noted on the event's official website.

Many of the Tour's fiber farmers exhibit their animals and products nationally, where they have won major awards at events like the Eastern States Exposition, the NYS Sheep and Wool Festival, the New England area North American Cashmere Goat Show, the Empire Alpaca Extravaganza, and the Southern Adirondack Fiber Festival. Enjoy the unique opportunity to learn from farmers throughout the county as they introduce you to their livestock and answer questions about their animals and the myriad uses of the fibers that they produce.

The Fiber Tour also offers the chance for visitors to learn about the fiber arts and to try their hand at a new craft technique. Most farms offer educational demonstrations and fun workshops throughout the weekend, showcasing a variety of fiber arts suitable for children and adults.

The Fiber Tour takes place rain or shine and visitors should dress for the weather.
