Visit Meadow Farm and learn about wool and the methods used to process this unique fiber. Clotho’s Spinning Guild will be on hand to demonstrate the expert skills needed to produce a shawl and other products. Watch sheep being sheared the old-fashioned way and with electric shears. Be amazed at how the sheep dogs herd the woolies. Hands on activities include carding, spinning and weaving. Visit with Friends of Meadow Farm and make a wooly craft to take home. Tour the farmhouse and enjoy historic music as you stroll the grounds of this beautiful 19th century farm site. Information: eik@henrico.us
