Sheep to Shawl at Mission Mill Museum, Salem, Oregon
by Nate Rafn
Mission Mill Museum will be open today for Sheep to Shawl, a family festival focusing on natural textiles and fibers from sheep, alpaca, goat, and rabbit. Several demonstrations are planned, including sheep shearing and spinning. Vendors will have wool yarn, scarves, cashmere garments, and knitting kits for sale. Live animals will also be on display.
This is a great event for anyone interested in learning more about how fleece and fur from different animals are used to create a wide variety of fiber products.
