Shearing refers to the cutting and removal of wool from a sheep by a a shearer, or the person who removes the wool. Sheep need to be sheared because they do not shed their wool.

Most breeds of sheep are sheared once a year. Shearing does not hurt the sheep and it is similar to getting a haircut. Shearing keeps sheep cooler in hot weather and the fibers are used to make yarn for fiber crafts as well as commercial manufacturing.
