Discover how raw wool from the Lincolns' own sheep is turned into finished cloth for use on the farmstead.

After the wool is shorn, visitors are encouraged to participate in the hands-on demonstrations including, sorting and washing the wool, teasing and carding it for spinning, and finally spinning the wool into yarn where some of it will end up being knit into items following nineteenth-century patterns.
