Our alpacas received their summer cut last Friday. Good timing, as it seems like our lovely spring temperatures are winding down and heat and humidity are arriving.
I am always surprised how skinny the alpaca look without their fur.
We end up with eight bags of fleece– two from each alpaca. The “seconds” from each one is used for animal enrichment. The “first cuts” are quality fleece that we typically sell. Anyone interested?
I wonder if you can make a face mask from alpaca fleece? 🙂
