Bluebonnet Fiber Tour 2014 - Saturday November 15th
A special event is being planned for our fiber friends! A wonderful full day of fiberlicious fun includes:
Tour of Bluebonnet Hills Alpaca ranch
While visiting Bluebonnet Hills, there will be hands-on time with the alpacas and a tour by the owners that promises to be enlightening and entertaining, followed by a demonstration of carding alpaca fiber into batts. There will be plenty of alpaca yarn for knitters as well as batts and rovings for spinners to purchase at the ranch.
Yarn Dyeing Workshop at WC Mercantile
At WC Mercantile, you will "get colorful" as you dye your own skein of yarn while learning about color theory and fiber. In addition to the dyeing class, there is plenty of space to sit 'n knit or shop 'til the heart's content.
Date: Saturday November 15th, 2014
Full day starts at 9:30am and ends at 4:30pm. Picnic-style box lunch from Loves Pies included.

I was hoping I didn't have to stare at alpacas for 3 hours, but when I got to Bluebonnet Hills Alpaca Ranch, I found I loved it. The lovely animals were fun to watch, serene and friendly. The owners were knowledgeable and answered questions. The whole morning was laid back and relaxing. I found I didn't want to leave! The yarn dying class was fun, if a bit elementary. Good basic class, and I came home with some nice dyed yarn. The bonus of the day is I couldn't believe the cost was so low. Wonderful time!
