Farm Fiber Day

Sunday, March 3, 2024 10:30 AM to 3:00 PM

We've got a great lineup for Farm Fiber Day, with both new and returning fiber vendors and a "supporting cast" of a dozen food and beverage businesses to keep us nourished.

Our thanks to Prado de Lana Farm for bringing their Lincoln Longwool sheep

all the way from their farm in Stockbridge, MA and to Lucky Lane Farms

and Pillar House Farm for introducing us to the

Ouessant breed of sheep, who will also be visiting from Lincoln, .

Look for yarn, roving, fleeces, spinning fiber, and finished items, sheep and bunnies, spinning on wheels and drop spindles, and sock making machine demonstrations.

Vendors will be located outdoors under cover, in heated and unheated greenhouses, under tents or indoors spread throughout the lower level of Russell's Garden Center.

Wool fiber is a renewable, sustainable and 100% biodegradable resourse, which sheep love to give away! Sheep are shorn once or twice a year. The process of making wool felt has a very low environmental impact - all you need is warm water and soap. Felt is a nonwoven fabric that is extremely durable and makes the best material for footwear - it is warm, hygenic, breathable and therapeutic, and, just like when sheep wear wool, it repels dirt!

At a very young age, Laura took an interest in making things with fiber. She began to knit and crochet almost as soon as she could manage the needles and hooks. She went thru many fiber phases, but always came back to knitting. In 1997, she and husband, Michael, turned their turn-of- the-century farmhouse back into a working fiber farm. Laura’s fiber interests grew, as she added spinning and weaving to her skills.
