Sheep to Shawl
Saturday, April 11, 2009
10:30 AM - 4:30 PM
Watch our sheep lose their winter coats! As the weather warms up, our sheep at Tullie Smith Farm are ready to shed their heavy coats. See as our sheep's wool is washed, carded, spun, dyed, and woven into a beautiful shawl. Take a tour of the 1860 Tullie Smith Farm house and learn about nineteenth-century farm life with demonstrations of blacksmithing, candle dipping, and open hearth cooking in our detached kitchen. Listen to old time music as you tour the gardens. And don't forget to meet our newest addition to the Gulf Coast Sheep family, Belle.
