Wool Days

    Improve listing Presented by

The sheep get their yearly shearing during Memorial Day Weekend May 24-May 26 at Old Sturbridge Village. Visitors can watch sheepherding demonstrations with border collies, and OSV's costumed historians will demonstrate the entire wool textile process, from scouring and carding to spinning and knitting. Try carding the wool by hand, and then see how much faster the old-fashioned Village carding mill can get the job done. Test your history knowledge at our textile exhibit, or even pick up the "ol' lumber" and play some 1830s-style “base ball.”
