Today we went to the Jondaryan Woolshed. It is a working museum just 15 mins from home. This week was the heritage festival so there was heaps of action. After reading a book that talked about sheep giving wool to make a blanket, it was the perfect time to go see the shearing at the woolshed. Both the boys were enthralled by shearing.
It was a fun day out with so much to see.
And right at the end of the day, I discovered a group that meets once a month at the woolshed to spin wool. They were really friendly and said I can go and have a turn anytime I want to. I can just imagine the fun that is going to be - making my own wool and then knitting it too.
