Wool Day's at Sturbridge Village

Discover how New Englanders reared sheep for their wool in the 1830s at Old Sturbridge Village’s annual sheep shearing festival – Wool Days – on Memorial Day Weekend, May 25-27. Welcome our spring lambs and see the adult sheep get their annual “haircut.” Throughout the weekend, farmers perform sheep shearing, while experts show off the sheep herding skills of border collies. Costumed historians will demonstrate the entire wool textile process, from scouring and carding the wool to spinning, and then knitting the hand-spun wool yarn. Visitors can even try their skill at hand-carding the wool.
