The event takes place from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. on Feb. 25, 2017, at the Botanic Garden's Heritage Farm.
Learn all about fiber animals and plants that are iconic to the Southwest, as well as those that come from all over the world. Tutorials are scheduled throughout the day. The Red Light Ramblers will also perform from 11 a.m-1 p.m.
"Attendees to our Winter Wool Festival can visit demonstrators as they spin, hook and weave, and they'll also get the chance to meet our newest resident at the farm," said Cheri Vogel, ABQ BioPark education curator. "Visitors will also enjoy some great music."
The event is included with regular admission.
