I just spent three days just outside of Asheville at the Southeast Animal Fiber Festival. It does sound funny and yes, there were many animals: sheep, angora goats, llamas, alpacas, and rabbits. Although they were all very cute and yes, I want one but I spent all of my time in the vendor and classroom areas. I took four classes from Chad Alice Hagen. What a blast! This is one of the scarves I made!
