We saw tons of you out this weekend for the annual Trailing of the Sheep Festival. In spite of the cold temperatures, it looked like you were having fun – we sure were. We were thrilled to see so many people checking out the wonders of wool and the delicious taste of lamb. Here are a few snapshots from the weekend.


CK taught us how to make lamb sausage roasted pepper stew and a spicy lamb vietnamese salad both using Lava Lake lamb. We’ll post those recipes soon.


Gilman, Ciro and Lava Lake teamed up to serve meatballs, sausage and art during the Gallery Walk.


At the folklife fair on Saturday, we watched colorful dancers from around the world.


Madeline taught kids how to make angels and rabbits out of Lava Lake wool.


We sold our first skeins of Lava Lake wool, after being inspired by Christien Meindertsma’s work in the Design for a Living World exhibit.

Sunday was the actual trailing of the Sheep parade. There were puppies, adorable Peruvian children and of course, plenty of sheep, wandering the streets of Ketchum.

In spite of some cold weather, the entire weekend was a huge success and we can’t wait for next year’s event.
