The wonders of wool – 19th and 20th May
Saturday 19th May, Sunday 20th May
Sheep Sheering and Wool Spinning Weekend
A fantastic opportunity for youngsters to see how the winter coats from the ewes are removed and transformed into clothing.
We start the day with our own sheep being sheared, come and see the transformation when a big woolly sheep loses all its wool and transforms to a skinny white sheep!
We then have the skilled team from Suffolk Village Spinners and Weavers who transform the fleece to wool and garments. Children are always amazed with the process, seeing the activity helps them understand how their clothing is made.
If you are planning to come along for a few events through the year why not buy a £40 season ticket, perfect for the children if accompanied by different adults at different times, mum and dad are not always available at the same time and it is perfect for grand parents.
