    and is made in to usable products - a shawl or other wool product

    the sun goes down.  Shearing is hard work and the cooler times are easier on the sheep and the
    shearer.  Come when it is convenient for you.  A sheep is shorn, and the process is repeated
    about every 30 minutes.  Spend the day or simply an hour or two.
