We hire professional shearers in the spring to shear our alpacas. The shearing process usually takes less than 10 minutes to shear an alpaca with electric shears. Shearing keeps the alpaca cool and comfortable and provides alpaca farmers with valuable fleece.


After the alpaca is shorn, the fleece is sorted and debris is picked out of the fleece. The fleece is then washed, dried and carded. Carding straightens the fiber into alignment and at this point the fiber may be dyed or blended with other fibers. Then the carded fiber can be processed into yarn, roving, felt or materials.
