Kathy & Glenn Stanko have owned llamas since 2003. Kathy "caught the fiber bug" a few years later. This program will be very visual and hands on. You will get to see and touch the llama fiber as it is right off the animal. You will feel the difference between yarn quality fiber and rug quality fiber. you will learn how the sheared fiber is transformed into yarn and many other final products. Llamas will not be present at this event.
