Old Sturbridge Village to Host Wool Days on Memorial Day Weekend

Thursday, May 12, 2016

 

Old Sturbridge Village will host Wool Days on Memorial Day Weekend, May 28-30. There will be at least 18 sheep and 20 spring lambs in the village. 

"Guests are most surprised to learn that the cleaned wool from just one of our sheep will produce about 4,000 yards of two-ply yarn, or enough to knit shawls for five women," said Jean Contino, Coordinator of Women's Crafts and Households at the Village. 

The Weekend 

During that weekend, attendees will learn how New Englanders reared sheep for their wool in the 1830s and watch experts show off the sheep herding skills of border collies. 

Visitors can go on a garden tour  to learn more about plants used to produce these natural colors. Costumed historians demonstrate spinning and weaving to show how early residents used will to make clothing and household textiles. 

Old Sturbridge Village 

Old Sturbridge Village, the largest living history museum in the Northeast, depicts a rural New England town of the 1830s. Each year, more than 250,000 visitors interact with costumed historians, experience up-close demonstrations of early American trades, and meet heritage breed farm animals.
