“The sheep are ready to shed their wool from the past year and that means new fleeces to wash, tease, card, spin, and dye,” said Cindy Earls, Homeplace Lead Interpreter. “We will show each step it takes to process our sheep’s raw wool into yarn, which we knit or weave into clothing during our Ewe to Yarn Challenge.”
