The annual Wool Fair in Ternengo offers markets and stalls of handicrafts plus the chance to learn about the professions and traditional activities having to do with wool-making, from shearing and tanning to spinning and knitting. Visitors also get the chance to observe live demonstrations and exhibits on sheep dogs, with a particular focus on those bred around Oropa. There are stands for adults and children alike, on such themes as sheep-shearing and the “Knit-Out”, the custom of decorating the distinctive corners of the city with knitted works.
