Date(s) - 17/04/2018 - 03/05/2018
Spend a day with us and learn how to skirt, sort and grade your own fibre. Also learn how to prepare a show fleece. Dates for 2018 are: April 17th, 18th, 23rd, 24th, 25th, 26th, 30th, May 1st, 2nd and 3rd.
Each day we aim to shear about 80 alpacas. The fleeces are all weighed as they come off the alpaca, and then transferred to the sorting tables where they are skirted, graded, bagged and labelled ready for sending to the mills. Show fleeces are prepared and labelled separately. This is all done on the day of shearing. We aim to show you just how straightforward it is to shear even this high number of alpacas. There is no charge, and lunch will be provided. Please book your day in advance. Call Mary-Jo, 0771 875 0303.
