Following the fiber

WEST JEFFERSON — The Ashe County Farmers Market held Fiber Day Saturday, June 1, where visitors saw sheep shearing, demos of fiber preparation, spinning and weaving. Local farmers like Chris Young walked through each step of the process fibers go through. Young sheared a sheep for as one of the first steps in the process.
