How wool is made

Two children visit a wool factory to find out how a sheep’s fleece is turned into woollen scarves. We meet the children as they come into the classroom from the playground wearing coats and scarves. An animated cat named Curious asks the children if they would like to find out how woollen scarves are made. The children watch some archive footage of a farm and see sheep being sheared. Next, they visit a wool factory where an expert shows them fleeces arriving from the farms, being sorted, washed, dried, carded and spun into yarn. Finally, the children finger knit their own scarves before returning to the classroom to tell Curious cat what they have learnt.
