Since the early 1800's, Washington County has been a welcoming home for wool and other fiber production.

The 25th annual Washington County Fiber Tour will take place on April 29th and 30th from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. On the tour, you can learn about a cottage industry that has enjoyed a renaissance in recent years as people re-invest in their local community.  This self-guided tour of eleven farms and a fiber mill is free and open to the public.

Here to tell us more are: Mary Jean Packer, owner of Battenkill Fibers Carding and Spinning Mill; Norma Johnson of Crazy Legs Farm; and Sister Mary Elizabeth of St. Mary's on-the-Hill Cashmere.
