Every October, The Taos Wool Festival turns Kit Carson Park into an eclectic outdoor marketplace. Various types of wool and crafts are exhibited in booths, which are set up in a ring around the perimeter of the park. There are wool products of all kinds ranging from scarves and sweaters to slippers and rugs, and lots of yarn.
Many types of wool are represented at the festival, too, including that of sheep, yak and angora.
There is food, live music, demonstrations and also live sheep, goats, lamas and alpacas in pens.
It is neat to see people demonstrating different weaving methods.
All in all, it’s a colorful event in many ways.
