Auction of Handspun Handwoven Shawls

Have you ever watched something develop right before your very eyes that was so beautiful it would forever remind you of spring days and gentle animals? Come to the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival’s Sheep-to-Shawl Contest on Sunday starting at 8 a.m.  Sheep breeders, shearers, spinners and weavers from up and down the Mid-Atlantic region come together once a year to entertain and intoxicate you with their skills.  The end result is a special shawl that you can bid on, own, or give to a special friend or family member.  These unique garments are auctioned at 1:30 p.m. on Sunday. Come and share the excitement of the Competition and Auction!
