The owners of White Oak Alpacas invite you to their beautiful alpaca farm near Woodland for the annual Sheared Delights Alpaca Fiber Festival from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, May 20, and Sunday, May 21. The festival is completely free, and the public is welcome to this day of fiber fun and education.
White Oak Alpacas will open its big barn and fill it with alpacas, fleeces, roving and yarns for sale. Meet the alpacas who produce the fiber that’s so soft and such a joy to spin and knit. There will be spinners spinning, fleeces being skirted, knitters knitting and alpacas being adorable. Come see how fleece becomes a finished product. Children are welcome with their parents, but Rover and Bowser should stay at home, as dogs disturb the alpacas. This year, Sheared Delights will feature the following local artists, ranches, and fiber vendors:
- Humming Angels Alpacas
- Blizzard Yarn and Fiber
- Boss Kitty yarns
- Dave Matteson
- Knitting for Fort Vancouver Reenactment
- Vancouver Handspinners
- Fort Vancouver Knitters Guild
- Urban Wolves Fibre Arts
