Join us for a guided tour of the exhibition From Fleece to Wool! The exhibition presents an overview of the history of sheep farming in the Škofja Loka area. Sheep farming has always been closely connected with weaving and spinning as sheep’s wool is the most suitable animal fibre for thread making. The exhibition features Škofja Loka Museum's archival materials related to sheep farming and processing of sheep’s wool, as well as the results of research into the history of these activities in the Škofja Loka area. It also presents sheep-related folklore since sheep, as one of the most important domestic animals, often appear in traditional sayings, tales and folk poems, as well as play a prominent role in Christian symbolism and related fine arts.
