We always look forward to our shearing days. It's hard physical work, but lighthearted and fun - with friends both new and old.
This year we have 43 alpacas to shear and find ourselves a little short-handed in the helper department! Would you be interested in lending a hand? It's a great opportunity to get hands-on with the alpacas and learn about them while taking part in this amazing process. We need some muscle getting alpacas on the shearing table as well as some helping hands at the fiber skirting station. No experience necessary - just a willingness to learn. In exchange for your help, we provide you with as much knowledge as possible, a hands on alpaca experience that you won't find elsewhere, and a hearty meal.
If you have any interest in participating, please contact us. We have 2 shearing days scheduled - one in late May and another in early June that could benefit from a helping hand!

Always an animal lover, alpacas entered my life in 2005.
I enjoy all aspects of life with alpacas - from caring for them, to training them, spinning and knitting their wonderful fiber, photographing them, and even writing about them!
