On March 18, Frontier Homestead State Park in partnership with the Sagebrush Fiber Artisans will host Sheep to Shawl, allowing participants to journey through the step-by-step process of taking wool from the sheep’s back and converting it into textile goods.

Shearing demonstrations will be given hourly starting at 10:30 a.m. and running until 1:30 p.m.
Demonstrations include shearing, washing, carding, spinning, and dyeing wool. Knitting and weaving will be available for hands-on participation. Admission is $2 per person or $5 per family. Friend’s Group members are free with membership cards.
