Fur was flying — literally — at the fifth annual Long Island Fleece and Fiber Fair (say that five times fast) held this weekend at Hallockville Museum Farm on Sound Avenue in Riverhead.

More than a thousand people attended the popular two-day attraction, which featured shearing, wool dying, spinning, weaving and sheep herding demonstrations, basket weaving, rug hooking and other folk art forms. Sheep, llamas, alpacas and angora rabbits were on display and 25 local and regional vendors sold a variety of fiber-related goods, including felted soaps, hats and scarves.
