When our shearer Kathy from Special K Alpacas came we enlisted the help of several of Scott's co-workers to hold down some feet and stand within spitting distance as we sheared the boys. Thankfully there was no spitting involved, and a big thanks to Mike, Laura and Cindy for helping us out. Kathy did a great job at shearing the boys fast with very minimal second cuts which is important because it means less waste. Lucky for the boys she decided their teeth were ok and there was no dentistry performed. So now we have approximately 6 pounds of good blanket fiber washed up and going out to Spinderlla's mill on Monday to be made into roving.
Our Etsy shop is up and running and I"ll be adding more to it as I get it made up. Keep an eye out for felted alpacas, and bird nesting materials. Get your birds the finest in nest linings with our suet cages stuffed with alpaca fiber!!
