LEBANON, Tenn. (WTVF) — You could find all things Alpaca in Lebanon for the annual "Natural Fiber Extravaganza". The festival, hosted by the Alpaca Owners Association, gathered enthusiasts from across the country.

About 20 vendors at the Farm Bureau Exposition Center displayed clothing, tools of the trade, and other items made from natural fiber.

The event included workshops, a fashion show, and contests with more than 500 fleeces entered.

It was an opportunity for attendees of all ages to learn hands-on about the many types of natural fiber.

"It both keeps you warm, but it's not like wool where it traps the heat in, so it's a really universal product," said President of the Alapaca Owners Association, Jennifer Hack.

The event will continue Sunday, July 11 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and is free to the public.
