|Adolf and Coco|
Once the wool was shorn, it was brought to the Kindergarten classroom, where it was sorted and cleaned of twigs, straw and other debris.
The children got a feel for the lanolin in the wool. Most didn't like the smell of the wool and quickly moved on to a different station.

I had washed this wool after Coco's first half was shorn a few weeks ago. The children got to 'tease' the wool and try the hand carder or the drum carder.

Once they had a bit of wool carded, the children brought it to one of the spinners. They could try the drop spindle with Carey, or try spinning at the spinning wheel with either Christine or Dorothy.

Once the wool was spun, the children brought the yarn to the loom
Thanks to everyone involved in this fun wool day!
