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 haircut). Sheep shearing occurs throughout the day. Over 100 sheep will be shorn on the farm this year. One finished shawl will be available for purchase through a silent auction.

Come to Woolly Weekend and watch the wool processed on site – combed, spun, and woven into a finished product. Children’s activities include weaving, games, a wool project and a coloring contest. Visit the Farm Animal Barn and pet the barn yard animals, or tour the educational and interactive Farm Museum and Educational Silo.

This event will also feature short-course fiber classes. Learn drop spindling or needle felting during both days. Please call or email the farm to pre-register for the class.

Groups of twenty or more are asked to pre-register. A picnic area will be available, so bring your picnic with you. Snack and beverage concessions will be available on-site. Woolly Weekend will proceed even in the case of inclement weather. 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.
