The Woodstock Fleece Festival was held on Saturday, October 19th. It was a rainy and chilly day but the beautiful fall colours made for a scenic trip and was a prelude to the spectacular colours of yarn available at the festival. 

I enjoy this festival because it's a bit different than the other festivals. There is a lot of yarn but it also features raw fibers, hand-dyed yarns, rug-hooking, work shops, demonstrations, and a barn with the animals that give us the beautiful fibers.

I bought some Pashmina Worsted yarn made by Madeline Tosh that's a blend of merino wool, silk and cashmere from The Needle Emporium. The yarn is luxurious, cozy and soft. I've been busy knitting up swatches for a new sweater design.
