Alpaca being shorn

Post Shearing Report

Our annual alpaca shearing on May 9-10th went very well, thanks to the efforts of our wonderful shearers (Tom Iamonico & team) & the many volunteers who were able to help out.  The weather was less than spring-like to say the least, with windy, cold conditions & even a few snow flurries (!) on the Saturday, but hopefully spring/summer weather will be seriously taking hold shortly now.

The alpacas managed the process well, & are now comfortably ready for our hot summer season.  Check out the difference in looks – Here are pics of our herdsire Maximus before & after shearing!
