At our woolcraft demonstrations you are given an insight into the importance of sheep and wool in Connemara's past. Learn the history of the local woollen industry and see the process of how sheep’s fleece is made into cloth through displays and demonstrations.
Sheep’s wool is made into yarn and cloth at our carding, spinning and weaving demonstrations. These demonstrations are practiced on wheels and looms from the turn of the last century.
Try spinning for yourself and your family. Allow children to discover what their role would have been in the 1900s through hands-on experience.
Technology has made hand looms and spinning wheels redundant unfortunately. However, at the Sheep and Wool Centre they are brought back to life, with a celebration of truly handcrafted produce.
Our wool craft demonstration are at set time throughout the day. Please see our for online bookings page for times and availability.
