It is not cereal fiber, but fiber from livestock. There were spinning classes, soap bars made from goat milk, handmade clothing made from the animals and lots of livestock.
Someone who appreciate livestock, Tom Forrester, an 82-year old retired sheepherder.
"I like it. If i didn't like it, I wouldn't do it. I herd sheep but it's hard work but it pays good. If I hadn't had liked it, I wouldn't have done it," says Forrester.
Crowds gathered around Keith Lilly, a woman who knows all about dying fiber with natural products, and other vendors, like Maureen Pritchard, who has not missed a single year at the Fiber Festival.
"I've been knitting since I was eight years old and I won't tell you how long ago that was and in 1988, we moved to West Virginia from Loudon County, Virginia bought a flock of Romney sheep and I just had a friend of mine in Maryland teach me how to spin and dye and that was it. I've been doing it ever since," says Pritchard.
This family event allowed adults and children to learn the heritage of spinning and fiber production.
