Annual NH Wool Arts Tour set for Oct. 9-10

Published: 9/29/2021 3:34:50 PM

The 38th annual NH Wool Arts Tour is scheduled for the peak of New Hampshire’s colorful fall foliage season, Oct 9 & 10, featuring four farms around the Monadnock region.

Fiber artists will demonstrate knitting, spinning, dyeing, crocheting, rug hooking, needle felting and weaving and fiber producing animals will be on site as well.

Locally-produced sheep wool, alpaca, llama, angora rabbit, and mohair will be available for purchase and vendors will be offering handspun and commercially spun yarns, hand-knit clothing, fleeces, photography, artwork and a variety of beautifully handcrafted products for that special purchase.

The Wool Arts Tour was established by a small group of local wool producers 38 years ago. They did so to raise awareness of, and passion for, natural fibers from their animals and encourage the next generation of fiber artists.

This tradition is carried forward with the 2021 host sites for the New Hampshire Wool Arts Tour: Spring Pond Farm, an alpaca & honey bee farm, located at 81 Muzzy Hill Road in Greenfield; Spinner Farm, a sheep farm and equestrian facility (192 Old County Road, Deering); Glory Be Farm, an organically raised Purebred Navajo Churro sheep farm selling meat, fiber products and heritage vegetables (268 Bible Hill Road, Bennington); and Brimstone Hollow Farm, a sheep farm selling Registered Romneys, yarn and fiber and organically grown vegetables (46 Middle Road, Hancock).

Hours for this event are Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Follow the Sheep Signs and visit participating farms in the region.
