Meet at Riverside Park where the Northfield Farmer’s Market is held. Kids will love meeting a real live wool producer from Simple Harvest Farm. See what the wool looks like in its different stages – from sheep to fleece to yarn – and learn about how it is transformed. Then choose to felt a wool ball, do simple finger knitting, or learn the more complex four finger knitting from some local wool lovers. Parents are responsible for supervising their children as we will meet near the playground and river.
