Sheep are shorn of their winter coats to obtain wool and prevent them from overheating during hot summer weather. This lustrous fiber is used to make many wonderful products from clothing to blankets. Sheep shearing is one of many hands-on opportunities children can experience. Also, learn how to spin and weave and make felt. See a border collie herd sheep and meet fiber-producing sheep. Regular Farmpark admission or membership applies. Please leave your pets at home! Pets are not permitted into Lake Metroparks Farmpark.
