Woolly Weekend is a “sheep to shawl” festival held at Shepherd’s Cross, an authentic working sheep farm, just north of Claremore OK 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.
Watch the wool processed on site – combed, spun, and woven into a finished product.
Children’s activities include weaving, games, wool project, and coloring contest.
Visit the Farm Animal Barn & pet the barn yard animals. (USDA licensed)
Tour the educational & interactive Farm Museum & Educational Silo
Sheep to Shawl: Over the three days we will create at least two shawls from the first shorn wool on Thursday morning. This includes the entire process! It is rare to find a true Sheep to Shawl event.
One shawl will be available for purchase via a Silent Auction.
Short Course Fiber Classes - learn drop spindling or needle felting both days. Please call or email to pre-register.
Help make one of the shawls!
