Iowa Sheep and Wool Festival

I recently went to the Iowa Sheep and Wool Festival.  It was pretty amazing to see all those people who knit and spin in once place. I don't know a single other person who spins, and I saw people spinning everywhere!  There was a sheep dog trial, a sheep shearing demonstration and lots and lots of vendor booths.  I wanted to buy a lot of things, but ended up with only two.

First, I got about 3 oz of natural brown wool.

Then, I also got this hand dyed fiber that is 65% merino wool, 15% Tencel (some sort of cellulose fiber), 10% Banana, and 10% least that's what the label says.  Regardless, it is very soft and I can't wait to see how the yarn turns out.
