This weekend was the West Michigan Fiber Festival. I went to stock up on wool roving (didn't find any felt), but my favorite part ended up being the critters.
There were really big bunnies.
Llamas with attitude.
Goats who needed a trim.
And goats who were just plain adorable.
Although I didn't leave with a baby goat (really, really had to talk myself out of that one), I did score some fabulously weird wool.
I think the stuff on the top is from those curly sheep I can't remember the name of, and the stuff at the bottom is wool "pebbles". What's it for? Who knows! What will Squirrel Momma use it for? Hmmm. Fish scales? Frog warts? Monster fur? Don't know yet, but I can practically guarantee it will be strange, and most probably have fangs.
