Have you ever ogled the vibrant colors of hand dyed wool or snuggled up in a woven blanket? Have you ever wondered how your favorite wool sweater came into being? Join the Littleton Museum for our annual Sheep to Shawl celebration and learn about all things wool and the transformation process from shearing the sheep to weaving the fabric. As we are not yet able to host out usual in-person events at the museum, we will be including all that you need or want to know on this web page, so check below for exciting videos, info sheets, puzzles, and more.
