Locally produced sheep wool, alpaca, llama, Angora rabbit and mohair will be available, and more than 40 vendors will be offering hand-spun and commercially spun yarns, kits, artwork and handcrafted products for purchase. Artists will demonstrate crafts such as spinning, weaving, rug-hooking and needle-felting, and fall food will be available.

The Wool Arts Tour was established by a group of local wool producers in 1983 to raise awareness of and passion for natural fibers from their animals.
