Good Day Out Details
What to expect during your Fleece to Felt Shearing Day

Ever wanted to shear a sheep? This is a great farm experience day for sheep-lovers, smallholders and crafters, and a great way to spend a 7th wedding anniversary which is wool! The shearing day can even be an alternative stag or hen do as this is a great have a go experience to share with friends.

Spend the day on a friendly organic Welsh hill farm in the Brecon Beacons National Park learning the basics of how to shear a sheep, have a go at shearing, and after a tasty farmhouse lunch you will use some of the fleece to make a hand-crafted felted item. This fantastic farm training experience also includes the full processing of stuffing to wool sacks, then learn how to wash and hand card the fleece to prepare it for the felting.

The training is held with very small groups and limited availability, as we can only shear in June & July for the well-being of the sheep. Please note that only 16’s and over may actually shear a sheep and any children must be accompanied by a paying adult. You will need wear wellies or sturdy boots and clothes that can get dirty or overalls.

Please note we have very friendly dogs but your own dogs are sadly not welcome for this experience due to possible stress levels for the sheep. A vegetarian lunch and refreshments are provided, and vegan and gluten-free options are available if you advise beforehand.

We have dates in June and early July so the sheep can grow their fleeces for the Welsh winter, but you can buy gift vouchers for people to choose the date to suit themselves.

If you wish to buy an undated voucher, please visit our Gifts section where you can either buy specific or general Gift Vouchers as great special presents. Pricing is £45 for 16s & under, and £90 for adults.

We also have a Shear a Sheep experience which is just shearing without the craft session and is £45.
