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 Farm
* 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
It’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.
