Almost all of Canada’s wool is collected, graded and sold through the Canadian Cooperative Wool Growers in Carleton Place, housed in a former railway roadhouse. Today, the co-op offers knitting and felting classes. If you call ahead, you can tour the building to watch graders at work. And during the annual Lambs Down Park Festival in June, you can watch sheep being shorn.
