Wool Spinner - June 2011

As part of our farm links we had a visitor from the Small Shepherd's Society
who demonstrated how to spin the freshly shorn fleeces into gold. The
children were fascinated to observe the process and they all were keen
to practise this new skill. Also a wonderful learning opportunity for children
to have first hand experience of the origins of wool and yarn.
