The Black Hills region was historically considered to be the Wool Capital of the U.S.A. This tradition is still alive thanks to the passions, talents and labors of our local sheep, llama, buffalo and alpaca producers, artists and artisans, entrepreneurs and the South Dakota State University Extension. We welcome fiber lovers into our community from near and far!
The Black Hills Fiber Arts Fair provides a venue to support the independent fiber producer, showcase and market the work of artists and artisans, inspire, and educate our community.
