Experience the “sheep to shawl” event from April 22-24
Visit Shepherd’s Cross in Claremore from April 22-24 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and witness a true “sheep to shawl” event where sheep will be shorn throughout the day and the resulting wool will be processed on site.
Please note, all activities will adhere to COVID restrictions. Shepherd’s Cross will arrange smaller groups and asks that masks be worn indoors.
Other highlights of the event include tours of the farm museum, four story observation silo and Bible Garden; short fiber arts classes; a petting area with barnyard animals; and a gift shop featuring handcrafted items from over 50 local crafters, as well as farm fresh USDA-processed and Animal Welfare Approved meat (lamb and beef), Amish jams, health foods, yarns and more. Additionally, the shop features a mission section, where 100 percent of the sale price is returned to the indigenous craftsmen. The shop also offers roving, batts, felting supplies, spinning and weaving supplies.
Woolly Weekend at Shepherd’s Cross is free and open to the public; however, a donation of $5 per person is recommended. For groups of 20 or more, please pre-register.
