Shearing 2018

Shearing day on an alpaca farm happens just once a year and this year it's Saturday, May 12th! This is the most important day on the farm where we harvest all the fiber the alpacas grew for the past year. They will be more comfortable for warmer weather that's on the way and we'll have plenty of fiber to turn into yarn or roving! If you'd like to see what the alpacas look like before and after and watch how shearing is done, stop by the farm! We will be very busy while shearing is taking place therefore the shop will not be open on this day, but we will be open 10 - 4 Sunday.

These photos of Buster Brown show how he looked before and after shearing!  What a difference!
