Taos Wool Festival

The annual Taos Wool Festival is the first Saturday & Sunday every October that is held in Kit Carson Park. The event is free, although people come to shop for yarn, fiber, animals like sheep, alpaca, etc. and to eat. There are demonstrations on various things like spinning. The weather has turned and it's usually a lovely autumn day where we can wear our knit/crochet/felt/woven creations. I had a nice time.

  1. I wish I could be there at the Taos festival. It sounds like so much fun. Those little alpacas are adorable. How do you keep from purchasing one and bringing it home to the back yard??!! (that would be ME, getting into trouble!!)
