Shepherd shaving a sheep in Festa de la Llana, Ripoll
Each year in Ripoll the most important time in a shepherd's life is relived in a folkloric hue; shearing time, the period in which the wool of goats and sheep is gathered. Shepherds and shepherds's apprentices shear the flocks in full view of the public and, with he first wool, make a mattress for a double bed.
