Prairie Pursuits: Shearing to Spinning at Conner Prairie
*The event has already taken place on this date: Wed, 04/01/2020
Have you ever wondered what it takes to take wool from the sheep to yarn? Shearing to Spinning gives you a hands-on experience of the woolly kind! We’ll start with watching one of Conner Prairie’s own sheep get shorn, April 25. We’ll then go through all the steps to get that dirty, greasy fleece to yarn nearly ready to spin. If you have your own drop spindle or spinning wheel you’d like to use, you’re welcome to bring it along. If not, we’ll have one for you to use that day. We’ll break for approximately an hour for lunch. Refrigeration and a microwave will be available if you’d like to bring a lunch. We’ll also have a list of restaurants that are close to Conner Prairie.
