Come see the horned dorset sheep and hog island sheep of the Colonial Plantation lose their winter coats. See the complete process -shearing, skirting, washing, dyeing, carding, spinning, knitting and weaving. There will be flax, bobbin lace, and lucet demonstrations. There will also be hearth cooking, garden, farm, and house tours. Enjoy a day in the country that is very close to home.

Shearing Demonstrations at 12:30 PM & 2:30PM

We will be using hand clippers to shear our sheep.
