Join Prospect Park Alliance at Lefferts Historic House to learn how sheep’s fleece is transformed into wool! Learn how to card wool using special tools and how to spin with a drop spindle; meet our resident spinner, Catherine Conrad, and see how she spins wool fibers into thread; join us on a parade to the Prospect Park Zoo to collect fleece from their sheep-shearing demonstrations; help staff clean the fleece and get it ready for felt balls and spinning; after the wool is washed and carded, you can try your hand at making a felt ball. Use the wool fibers to shape a ball and see if you can make it bounce! Register today.
