Making Felt at Appleton Farms

Learn about the process of making felt from wool at Appleton Farms in Ipswich Massachusetts.

Warmer spring weather means its sheep shearing time on the farm.  But what to do with all that wool? Learn about the time honored tradition of wool felting. We’ll start by learning how to “card” the raw wool into soft fiber for spinning or felting. Afterwards, we’ll try our hand at making felt balls to be used for farm-fun necklaces. Wool, wood beads and decorative string will be provided, but feel free to bring anything special of your own to add to your necklace. Recommended for ages 5-9.

Pre-registration is required as we can not accommodate a large group with drop-ins for this program. Registration is by the child, but an adult must attend with them (at no cost).
