Celebrate all things “woolly” at a Sheep and Shawl Day on Saturday, Aug. 11, at the Alden House Historic Site from noon-4 p.m.

Explore the process of turning wool into cloth and fiber arts with a demonstration of 18th century spinning, weaving, rug hooking, knitting and more.

Visit with lambs from the Soule Homestead Education Center in Middleborough. Try hands-on activities in spinning and weaving.
