2021 – Practical Events
In 2021 we will be running additional practical days such as:
Sheering Day: Come and spend as much time with us as you like on sheering day. This is limited to 6 people who will be hands on herding the alpacas ready for sheering, packing the fleece into bags and loading the fibre drum to clear the dirt and dust off the fleece. Come rain or shine, the alpacas will be sheered in their shelter and the fleeces moved to the barn or outside (weather permitting) for the drum. £30 for the day per person – over 12 year olds only.
Fibre to yarn workshops: The fibre from the alpacas needs to be sorted, washed, carded (combed) and made into roving ready for spinning. Come and learn how this is done by having a go. The workshops are 1.5hrs long and you get to make the roving ready for the spinner. It is a practical day so be ready to get very hands on. £25 per person – over 12 years old only.
