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. Over the three day period, at least three shawls will be created entirely from the wool shorn on the first morning of the event. It is rare to find a true sheep to shawl experience.

Shearing and demonstrations take place inside the Amish built tour barn, which houses some of the animals as well as the wool processing, farm museum, and the gift shop. There are short course fiber classes available you can learn drop spindling or needle felting during the event.  Be sure to visit the Farm Animal Barn and pet the barnyard animals. Tour the educational interactive Farm Museum and Four Story Observation Silo, as well as the Bible Garden.

Bible Garden guided or self-guided tours will occur every 30 minutes. In addition, Shepherd’s Shop will be open during the event and will feature a host of “woolly” and farm-related handmade gifts made by Shepherd’s Cross and over 50 local crafters. Shop for farm fresh meat, Amish jams, health foods, yarns, and much more. Samples of American lamb meat and Dexter beef will be available.

This is a free event, but donations are appreciated. Groups of twenty or more are asked to pre-register.
