Oregon Flock and Fiber was really great this year! The weather was perfect, it never felt TOO crowded. And there were SO MANY things to look at this year! We did a few laps before I started getting some goodies. My Mother-In-Law offered to buy some stuff as a belated b’day present and I had my budget and I put both to good use.
A lot got accomplished this year. Finally got something at the Abstract Fiber booth which I’ve been meaning to do for years. Picked up a Lo-Lo Bar from the Bar-Maids. Got my mother-in-law to give drop spindling a try. The piece de resistance was the goat obstacle course – it was delightful!
And there were definitely some purchases – see below for the haul!
This year was definitely a year of fiber!
About 2oz of orange fiber. I failed at getting the business name but am excited to work with it!
A beautiful braid of fiber that I can’t remember where I got it or what the content is…BUT it was a steal at $10
Braid of fiber from Dicentra Designs (click on the photo for a link) – it’s 60% Polwarth & 40% Tussah Silk in the Pelennor colorway
Black Rainbow Batt from Upstream Alpacas (click on photo for link) – 80% black baby alpaca & 20% hand dyed silk
And of course it wouldn’t be a fiber festival without a bit of yarn

730 yards of Abstract Fiber’s Chihuly in Huckleberry (80% American Targhee/20% Silk) – it is to DIE for
