Fleece to Shawl Competition

Sponsored by Ten Mile Fiber

Five person teams (carder, spinners, weaver) will compete for prize money and bragging rights at the first Washington County Fair Fleece to shawl competition. Teams start with a raw fleece, prepare the fiber, spin the yarn and weave a team designed shawl start to finish in 3 hours!

Each team brings a fleece straight from the sheep, alpaca, goat or llama and a loom with warp ready to weave a finished shawl.

Later in the afternoon, the results of the judging will be announced and the shawls will be sold at auction.
