We have made every effort to create a safe environment with plenty of room and precautions in place to keep everyone comfortable.
This opportunity for this type of tour is so unique and will give you a true "insider's experience". Imagine, if you will, being informed of many aspects of sheep, wool, and fibers, together with the manufacturing of yarn - the old and the new, while doing it in a bucolic and pastoral environment. This surely will be a most memorable experience. Our tours will be available Mondays - Fridays 10 a.m., 12:30 p.m., and 2:30 p.m. OR Sundays at 2:30 p.m.
