It’s that time of year when hairy animals need to be sheared and alpacas are no exception. Bootsy and Albie have been waiting a while (reluctantly) for this to happen. The guy who ended up doing the job for our two lads was only experienced in shearing sheep which is a whole different ball game. Despite this he managed to do a good job where it mattered and left the lovely locks on their upper necks, heads and legs alone. Although they look quite comical it actually works quite well for me as I don’t have to spend so much time sorting through the fleece for the best bits to spin.
