Sheep to Shawl

Spring is here and it is time to shear the sheep! Join us as Clothos Handspinners demonstrate, teach and offer you a chance to try your hand at processing wool – carding, spinning, weaving, and dyeing. Compare the sheep shorn (that’s the past tense of “shear”) with electric shears to those shorn by hand. You can buy a fleece right off the sheep and watch the dogs maneuver the sheep. Enjoy music under the shade of the trees. Food and textile vendors will also be available. Information: eik@henrico.us
