Sheep to Shawl

Have a hands-on experience with wool

Program to Go at Your Site

Using the wool from the flock of sheep at Historic New England’s Spencer-Peirce-Little Farm, students learn each step in the process of creating cloth. While they pick, clean, card, and spin wool by hand, they learn how technology provides improved tools to make each step faster and more efficient. They then try their hand at spinning wool and create a bracelet to bring home.
