Let's Knit some Knockers in Public!
Check out the pictures from our event on our Knitted Knockers page
We now carry the recommended yarn as well. It is called Ultra Pima and it knits up beautifully soft. You can see/purchase the colours we have in stock.
We will have a crafts person to help with all your questions or you could be the one giving advice to a "new to knitting" person. They come in all age groups from the very young to the more mature crafter.
Bring the family on June 18th to 142 Franktown Rd in Carleton Place for a fun filled day.
This is a non-gated event and is FREE to enter the grounds and FREE parking. Demonstrations are FREE to view.
Food and merchandise vendors will be on site offering items for sale.

The Carleton Place (BIA) isn’t sheepish about letting people know that Carleton Place is the largest distribution centre for lamb’s wool in Canada!
Food stands, vendor displays, sidewalk sale, petting zoo, pony rides, spinning and weaving for the fibre enthusiast, and of course, sheep shearing demos and sheep dog demos through out the day.
Every year it gets bigger and better.
Something for all ages to enjoy.
With wool being the fibre on which the festival is centred, the day will feature hands-on demonstrations of sheep herding involving working sheep dogs, sheep shearing and the spinning of wool. As well, in keeping with the festival theme, tours will be conducted of the Wool Growers facilities. The Lambs Down Park Festival will be an opportunity for us to showcase some of the dynamics of Canada’s sheep and wool industry.
Other aspects of Carleton Place’s rich heritage will be on display at the festival. For instance, since the Wool Growers occupy what was originally the round house and machine shops for the Canadian Pacific Railway, one display will track Carleton Place’s railway past.
There will be local fresh produce, petting zoo and pony rides, kids activities and more. Spectators can relax at a picnic table enjoy a bite to eat and a drink from great local vendors.
You will find unique demonstrators and displays with all kinds of interactive activities for the young and old to participate.

The weather was perfect for our annual Lambsdown Park Festival.
The people were great and so were all the animals! There were vendors selling foods, handmade crafts, face painting, you name it then it probably was here last Saturday.
There was sheep shearing, sheep dog demos, dance lessons, children's pony race, learn to finger knit / crochet / felting table . . . . just to name a few events that took place that day.
Check out the videos and pictures from this event on our head office website at www.wool.ca/Lambsdown_Park_Festival
Hope to see you next year!
Just a sample of the crafts that were made during our Annual Lambsdown Park Festival.
We had kids, young and old, learning a new talent or refreshing an old one. Some were taught how to finger knit, finger crochet or as above, how to felt sheep's wool into a lamb. Once the googly eggs and pipe cleaner legs were added, it started to look like a lamb.
We received donations from suppliers for the yarn that was used for finger knitting or finger crocheting. The sheep’s wool roving was donated by the Real Wool Shop.
Credit for the success of the craft table is due to the kids of the staff that were doing the teaching.
Thanks you guys! You did a great job!
