LYS One Day Education & Operations Tour
We have been told we are a most unusual operation and you can see it all, what we are making and growing right here in Virginia!
This is a special event for Yarn Shops Only: Starting at 10am and going until you're finished exploring and learning, we are planning to give you (and your friends) a real educational and fun experience at our sheep ranch, our textile museum, a peek into our textile mill including how we dye our yarns kettle-dye style, and plenty of time in our Country Store with "all things sheep & more!"
You will the learn the history of sheep and wool as well as the history of our operation, via a Conestoga wagon ride to the main farm, a visit to our sheep barn, meeting our sheep, and experiencing a hoof trimming demonstration. We will video cast our textile mill so you can see how we dye and prepare the yarn since it is 14 miles away.
Lunch will be provided along with drinks and homemade pies for dessert!
As our special LYS guest, you will be able to see, touch and purchase any of our yarn collections to bring with you or we can ship them later (for free!). With each collection we will provide a beautiful color sign for your display.
