Sheep Shearing Day at Petaluma Adobe

Primary tabs

Watch our flock of sheep get sheared! Join shearer, John Sanchez, as he demonstrates historic & current ways of cutting wool off sheep. Learn how to card & spin wool as they did in the 1830's. The Petaluma Adobe served as the headquarters for General Vallejo's 66,000 acre cattle rancho from 1836 to 1846. Shearing was a necessary part of rancho life. Wool was turned into blankets and rugs and sent out to the trade ships. See website for more details.
