37th Annual Spring Shearing

  • Rainbow Fleece Farm, W7181 Hustad Valley Rd., New Glarus, WI 53574

Rainbow Fleece Farm was established in 1978.  Beginning in 1980, our spring shearing brought appreciative spinners to the farm to meet the sheep and choose a fleece.  Now most of the sheep will be shorn prior to show day, but we will reserve some to be shorn at the event:

  • Marcie Poppen, a former Iowa Women Shearing Champion! Shearing at noon, 1 and 2 pm.
  • On Saturday, the Marshall Spinners Guild will be with us.
  • On Sunday, the Bishop Hill Fiber Arts Guild from western Illinois will be spinning on the weel and with the hand spindle.  Join in!
  • Curious about Blending Boards?  Lynn Weinburger will be playing with spring colors and spinning multi colored rolags.
  • Pat Ottaway will show machine needelfelting and wool applique for "Penny Rugs".
  • Needlefelting, anyone?  We'll have our "hands on" session where you can learn the basics both days.
  • Visit our Woolen Mill and Yarn & Fiber Shop
