OH MY GOODNESS - there were so many choices. I saw living sheep and angora rabbits, fleece that had been cut from the sheep and not processed, washed fleeces, all the way to processed and dyed fiber and even art batts and rolags. There were also other fibers available for purchase.
I got a haul of:
Alpaca, an alpaca and silk blend, bamboo (white and red), imitation angora (for blending,) wool that has been dyed, a small art batt and even a couple of spools of ribbon yarn to use in my weavings.
This is the entire haul
The left back corner is an Orchid wool and directly in front of it is one that he called "Brick Red" but has a decided purple tone to it.

The real surprise of the day was what was given to me not long after I walked in the door. At one booth the lady had a small stack of Simplicity Bias machines. A couple of them made piping also. We stopped to chat with her and she GAVE us each one of the Bias and Piping machines. I errr.....borrowed this photo from a website.
