On Saturday, April 20 from 12 PM to 4 PM, watch as the Thompson-Neely sheep are shorn of their wool and tour the grist mill at this family friendly event. This limited event will include a trip to the barn for a hand shearing presentation as well as period demonstrations and tours of our historic Grist Mill. From there, follow the Colonial process of washing and carding the wool and spinning it into yarn. You’ll also get a take-home activity kit, full of Colonial crafts!
