Part 11 – RI Wool & Fiber

Sheep Shearing

Coggeshall Farm & Museum gave a demonstration of hand shearing at the festival. I happened upon it in the middle, and it was a surprisingly peaceful operation – the shearer manipulated the sheep and the shears in a calm, straightforward manner – aside from the occasional BLAT from the sheep  (which was echoed by the chorus in the barn), Mr. Sheep was simply along for the ride!
