Spring in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley means Wool Days at the Frontier Culture Museum in Staunton. The museum will shear sheep using traditional hand shears at 11:00 and 2:00 at either the English farm yard or at the 1850 American farm barn yard. There is a good chance we will shear a third sheep at 10:00 most days.
Visitors will have the opportunity to try many activities during Wool Days. Perhaps try your hand at:
* Weaving on the Irish FarmIt's sunny with comfortably cool temps in the 50s and 60s this week ... come on out and join costumed interpreters as they relive life as it was in earlier days of America.
* Card and spin wool on the 1820s American Farm
* Help sort and scour wool at the English Farm
* Process flax on the German Farm
* Touch flax, wool, and sheep
