Alpacas are sheared once a year. A
good set of shears - manual or electric - will last a lifetime for the small alpaca farm.
If you prefer shearers are also available to hire.
The following is some information from the Natural Fibre Centre (NFC) at Olds College, Canada:
After the fiber comes off the alpaca, it needs to be sorted by color, fineness and length so you get the best quality end product.
How do you get started raising alpacas and growing your own luxurious alpaca fiber?
