Knitting for Knockers?







What is this sheep doing? Come on down to the Wool Growers on Saturday during Lambs Down and find out. 

SATURDAY is Lambs Down at Wool Growers.(10-3). but come park at the Carleton Place Farmers Market –enjoy what we have at the market (830-1230) and take Arlee Sheet’s horse trolley over to Lambs Down. Don’t forget iconic George Chenier Sr. will be playing good old Lanark County music at the market from 10:30-12:30–


Did you know that International Knit Day is June 18th? It’s also the same day as the Lambs Down Park Festival in Carleton Place.

The Real Wool Shop at Lambs Down is involved with Knitted Knockers of Canada. Knitted Knockers are special handmade breast prosthesis for women who have undergone mastectomies or other procedures to the breast. These soft comfortable lightweight prosthesis are available for FREE through the organization.

All of the organization’s knit “knockers” are made by volunteers and donated free of charge to women who have had a mastectomy.

The Real Wool Shop is looking for volunteer knitters to come out and knit knockers. They also carry the yarn and have the free pattern.
