     Today my daughter and I visited the Flagstaff Sheep and Wool Festival. This is our third year attending this event and it was under new management with alot more vendors and hands on demonstrations. The emphasis was on regional/local ranches so it was fun to see the variety of animals people in the desert southwest raise.




      I came home with some dyed Arizona raised mohair locks destined to be doll hair.



     And some lovely cloudlike naturally black alpaca/CVM blend roving from a ranch in southern Colorado.

     We were very tempted to bring home a gorgeous French angora rabbit, but resisted!
