This coming Saturday, May 6th from 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. is NRT’s Spring Farm Festival! This event includes arts and crafts, planting activities, play areas, "Touch-a-Tractor" and more! My favorite part of this event is when we shear our sheep! So to prepare you for the shearing here are some wooly interesting facts!
We all think of using wool to make clothing, socks, hats and mittens but did you ever think to insulate your house with it? Well since it is fire-retardant, insulates in both hot and cold climates helping reduce energy costs. It also is very resistant to mold, mildew, and odors.
Now that you know all of these wool facts come to our Spring Farm Festival to see where it all starts, ewe wool not believe your eyes!
