Description: On September 27, sheep will be brought in to Bryant Park to graze freely and play center stage in an installation which will transform the outdoor space an interactive woolen wonderland. The park's fountain will be drained for the day and filled with wool and yarn, and several trees and benches in the park will be covered with wool fabric. A table will be set up to showcase how raw wool is sorted. Crafting and knitting stations will showcase wool-centered activities. A custom made bed made primarily of wool will be on site, along with the craftsman who made it, to highlight the process of creating a mattress from wool.
