Learn about wool thanks to Palacerigg’s rare breeds sheep

Wool – and no ordinary wool – is the theme of a special free event at Palacerigg Country Park On Sunday, July 13.

Visitors can see experts shearing the rare breed sheep who live in the park then watch it transformed by spinners, weavers and felters into wool and felt. Meanwhile the Quack Commanders, a talented group of sheep dogs, will herd ducks through an obstacle course.
