Join us for a free fun-filled day here at the Cockayne Farmstead. Learn about the journey that wool takes from a sheep to becoming a piece of clothing that we can wear! Enjoy demonstrations, vendors, food, children’s activities, and tours of the 1850’s farmhouse. For more information, call 304-845-1411.
Watch how sheep are sheared and then see the various processes involved in preparing wool including carding, spinning and weaving. A shawl will be made at the fort and raffled off on WV Day School tours are welcome on Friday. School Tours: $5.00/student; $6.00/chaperone (one free chaperone admission per each 10 students).
