Wool Working Day

On Sunday, we participated in a woolworking class with a friend and her kids.  We learned to prepare, card, spin and ply the wool.

  1. My kids have enjoyed this activity too. Have you read Charlie Needs a Cloak by Tomie dePaola? It goes very well with sheep to sweater lessons. http://highhillhomeschool.blogspot.com/2011/11/viking-history-co-op-week-2-spinning.html

  2. Oh this looks like so much fun! What amazing experiences you are offering your children. I wonder if you've seen Renate Hiller's little video on this sort of work? Your lovely photos made me think of it, though I've watched it so many times because I think it's so beautiful and wise - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bfoByYLSBY8
