This sheep would like to meet you at the Kentucky Wool Fest.

Fall brings cravings for warm sweaters and cozy throw blankets — especially those made of soft, fuzzy wool.

Find what you crave this weekend at the annual Kentucky Wool Festival in Falmouth, just 50 minutes south of downtown Cincinnati. The festival highlights the state's wool-spinning heritage and will feature plenty of food, entertainment and history.

In the Wool Tent, find a variety of ready-to-spin fleece from sheep, alpaca, goats and other animals. There also will be beautiful handmade yarns and crafts for sale.

Don't forget to pay tribute to the sheep that provide the wool for textiles and other home goods. A sheep shearer will be available all day (this one apparently can do it blindfolded, the festival website says), plus Miller's Border Collies and Katahdins will demonstrate the art of sheep herding.

Throughout the festival, live music will be available on two stages.

10 a.m.-10 p.m. Oct. 1 and 2, and 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Oct. 3. Admission is $5 per person; three-day passes are available for $12 at select locations. Admission is cash only. 48 Concord Caddo Road, Falmouth. kywoolfest.org.
