More alpaca shearing

Was back at the farm on Friday to help with the bagging of fleece from the remainder of the alpacas. This time the shearer was Australian with a female assistant, the poor girl was in the firing line of all the green spit & by the time we were done I think we’d all had share. Instead of a sandbag on the neck to hold them down the assistant straddled the necks and helped turn the animals for the shearer. Such beautiful fibre & so much came home with me!shearing alpaca

  1. Oh dear – that poor girl, covered in green spit – I think all Alpaca Shearers deserve danger money! Hope to see some of your alpaca yarn once you’ve spun it, Susanne

  2. Stlill at the washing stage as I’m so sensitive to dust now I cant spin it straight from the beast. x
