Fleece Festival

It’s a wild and wooly celebration at Prospect Park Zoo when the sheep get their annual haircuts! Learn how goat herders in Mongolia are actually saving wildlife through cashmere fiber cooperatives. Special talks and crafts and, of course, the fascinating shearing of the sheep by a professional shearer. Bring back the woll to Lefferts Historic House for Prospect Park Alliances Fun on the Farm event, where you can learn to spin wool into felt and yarn!
