Woolly Weekend is a “sheep to shawl” festival held at Shepherd’s Cross, an authentic working sheep farm, just north of Claremore on scenic Route 66. Come to the farm and watch as the sheep are shorn (given a hair cut) for the summer. Sheep will be shorn approximately every 30 minutes. The wool will then be processed on site – washed, combed, spun, and woven into a finished product. The farm museum will also be open. The Bible Garden will be available for guided or self-guided tours. Shepherd’s Shop will be open, featuring a host of “woolly” and farm related gifts and wares.
As part of the event, samples of farm fresh American lamb meat will be available. This
American lamb is raised in the pastures at Shepherd’s Cross. The meat is 100% natural, free range, and grass fed.
Admission is donation based- suggested donations $5 per person. Woolly Weekend will proceed even in the case of inclement weather. All demonstrations will take place in the Amish built gambrel roof tour barn, which houses some of the animals as well as the wool processing, farm museum and the gift shop.
