Sheep shearing - Tundeida in Savognin

Sheep shearing is celebrated again in Val Surses!



At the traditional sheep shearing market you will find numerous stalls with regional products as well as a wide range of creative, high-quality crafts and the children can expect a colorful entertainment program. The actual sheep shearing takes place in a new format.

Products made of sheep's wool had long been forgotten. However, this natural product is gaining more and more attention thanks to the healing effect of wool and its benefits in a wide variety of industrial processing processes. With a visit to the sheep shearing you support the craft of the farmers and producers in Val Surses.

This year, the actual sheep shearing will be reorganized: The sheep no longer make the long walk from Alp Flix into the valley, but arrive in Savognin from nearby Alps/pastures. In addition, the numerous sheep are no longer shorn in the big tent, but at the village brunch in plaza Grava and on the schoolhouse square Grava. In both places, 10 to 15 sheep are shorn throughout the day.

As before, the sheep shearing market offers a wide variety of products and crafts from the region. For the children, the Pinocchio Club is all about handicrafts and
felting wool. And for the very little ones there is again a fairy tale hour. In the foyer of the Sala Grava, the Alpine cheese presentation with competition will take place as usual. The Sennalpen from the Surses and the Albula Valley introduce themselves and the audience chooses the best alpine cheese in the region by blind tasting. At the market stall, of course, cheese can be bought from every Alp.
