Join us for the Littleton Museum’s Sheep to Shawl event on Saturday, May 14, 2022 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. to see wool transformed from dirty fleece off the sheep’s back to the woolen items we all know and love. No fee for admission.
Watch the museum's sheep shearer, Bob Schroth, shear one of the museum's Navajo-Churro sheep and explain the process of shearing.
What happens to the wool after it has been sheared off the sheep? Download the Sheep to Shawl activity packet to learn how the wool is processed.
