Wool Market This Weekend!

On June 8th and 9th, the 23rd Estes Park Wool Market will welcome over 10,000 spectators to one of the largest all-natural fiber markets in North America.  The Fairgrounds will be full of exciting events including demonstrations, contests and exhibits with something sure to please everyone.

 

Watch amazing sheepherding canines and their handlers demonstrate their skill as an announcer provides play-by-play explanations of their herding techniques.  The Children’s Tent – appropriate for kids of all ages, offers hands-on opportunities to weave rope, try out a loom, and spin wool.

 

Event demonstrations include shearing, fiber preparation, spinning and weaving. You can even learn how to pack a llama for hiking or hunting.  Sheep, llama, alpaca, and Cashmere an Angora goat competitions and fleece contests are held throughout the weekend and shoppers will love the wonderful selection of fleeces, raw fibers, novelty knitting and crocheting yarns as well as finished coats, scarves,  hats, shawls and fiber processing equipment.

 

After a full day at the market, relax to the music of Fall river in a beautiful Boulder Brook Suite.  Be sure to book early and stay late!
