Discover how New Englanders reared sheep for their wool in the 1830s at Old Sturbridge Village’s annual sheep shearing event – Wool Days – on Memorial Day Weekend, May 25-27. Welcome our spring lambs and see the adult sheep get their annual “haircut.”

Throughout the weekend, farmers will perform sheep-shearing while costumed historians will demonstrate the entire wool textile process, from scouring and carding the wool to spinning, and then knitting the hand-spun wool yarn. Visitors can even try their skill at hand-carding the wool.
