This weekend I got to go to Lambtown – a sheep and wool festival that’s held every year in Dixon, California. Dixon is a 2 hour drive from where I live, but it was totally worth it, because I got to see a ton of cool things and squish a lot of yarn and fiber.
I also got to pet a bunch of really cute sheep and learn about different sheep breeds. The sheep were very fluffy and open to being petted and scratched.
And there were sheepdogs!! They were doing a sheep herding demonstration. It was fun to watch, although I wasn’t exactly sure what the goal was – it sort of seemed like the dogs were just moving the sheep around for the sake of moving them around.
And, of course, I bought some yarn. I got 2 skeins (595 yards each) of some super soft alpaca from Fanfare Farms in Vacaville, California.
All in all, I had an awesome time at Lambtown, and I will definitely go back next year.
