Yarns come in all shapes, sizes, colors and types. I found some soft, supple alpaca and some beautiful novelty wool and mohair blends. Their were natural hand dyed and super color synthetic dyed yarns from all types of animals. They even had angora yarn with rabbits on display. They also had all the equipment you would need for spinning yarn and weaving looms.
See the animals I saw at the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival.
