Visitor Information

Spinning at the Animal Centre
 
Some visitors to the Animal Centre last season had an unexpected treat when they saw Ann Johnson spinning fleece from the Castle's flock of Cheviot sheep. Ann was happy to answer any questions from visitors and at times allowed some of the children to 'help' her and was always happy to let anyone 'have a go' on the spinning wheel.



The wool produced from the sheep is high quality and beautifully soft.

Ann is a founder member of the Castlehill Spinning Group based in Castletown and was recently involved in a Skype linked event with a similar group in the Falkland Islands.

Ann is normally demonstrating in the Animal Centre on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays during Castle opening hours.
