Sheep and Wool, or 'Rhinebeck Sheep and Wool' or officially NEW YORK STATE SHEEP AND WOOL FESTIVAL is one of the country's premier fiber events hosted every year on the third weekend in October at the Dutchess County fairgrounds. It's a must-see for many with (usually) over 30,000 people attending—this year's festival will be October 14-17, 2021.

At FAB, we look forward to Sheep and Wool because it's a great time to meet many of you who we usually only see online. This year we hope to see you on Zoom! Or stop in to the store if you're in the area!

For fiber fanatics, a visit to Fab is a great chance to come see and touch the some of the most fabulous luxury fibers available today, many not available at the Sheep and Wool Festival!


This year's Sheep and Wool will be held (either virtually or in person: TBD) Thursday-Sunday October 14-17, 2021, with more details to be announced. Fab will celebrate with extended hours 10am-7pm Saturday-Sunday...and limited in person shopping! (Yes, there may be lines) or EMAIL FAB to arrange special early/late visit.
