Alpaca Shearing &

Husbandry Service

Preparation for Shearing Day

You and your Alpacas need to be prepared in advance so that the day can operate as smoothly as possible.


Please clear your paddock about a week before to avoid twigs & burrs becoming entangled in the fleece.


If it looks like rain please keep your Alpacas shut in a dry clean place as we can not shear wet Alpacas.


We need a large flat floor place of at least 5 metre by 3 metres. 


You will need to provide bags for the Alpaca fleece (we recommend 3 for each animal) marker pens & tags.


If outside, we can use posts or improvise; we have used our vehicles, a tractor & various agricultural implements.


We are versatile and like to come fully prepared so please let us know the access, terrain and whether we need to bring a generator.
