World of Wool

A sunny spring day was the perfect opportunity for Meadow Farm visitors to learn about sheep and wool and to witness the methods used to process the fiber through hands-on activities. At four separate "stations," visitors watched as sheep were herded by dogs, then sheared with scissors and machines to remove their wool, which then was weaved and spun on site by members of Clotho's Spinning Guild.

Pictured at top, Guild member Mary Frances Mays demonstrates the spinning process from wool sheared off the sheep. > Read more.
