We love the U.S. fiber festival scene – a riot of color, creativity and inspiration! Here in New England there are dozens of small and large gatherings of fiber folk every year.
From rare sheep breeds, to cute angora goats, fluffy rabbits and skillful sheepdogs…there’s never a dull moment at the New Hampshire Sheep & Wool Festival . Always held in May on Mother’s Day Weekend, this festival has a unique New England vibe that exudes friendly camararderie and a sense that we’re all lucky to be fiber and animal lovers.
You can participate in educational programs, watch sheepdog trials and animal judging, enjoy the many excellent festival food choices, and add to your stash of yarn that’s locally-grown, spun and dyed.
