In northern New Mexico is a village call Los Ojos. There's a weaving shop there called Tierra Wools. It's been there for decades and continues the local tradition of shearing the sheep, natural yarn dying and weaving. Their website is currently under construction - HERE. Saturday was their Annual Festival. I met some of my friends who have a little casita in the village for a day full of fun.

Here's some photos from the day.
|Talk about old school - no electric shears used here!|
The young woman singing grew up among the looms at Tierra Wools. She now lives in San Francisco and came home for the celebration. She has a beautiful voice.
|I bought some natural dyed yarn. She's putting it on a spool for me.|
