The rovings are spun into yarn which is then processed into a variety of saleable products by weaving, knitting, and or felting. All items are juried and only items made with local fibre, and hand-dyed with dyes made from local plants are qualified to receive certified Fibreshed tags.

It has been a successful year and even the ANWG bears are happy to be on display for sale.
