On 7th July 2017, our alpaca heard were sheared for the first time since they arrived at our Farm site near Chichester in West Sussex. Staff and students were on hand to help with shearing, including our very own “Alpaca Jack” Jack Arden-Brown, who supervised the shearing team that came out from Shearing UK. The Shearing UK team expertly navigated the process of giving our alpacas a wee haircut, and our hairy boys were none the worse for their short back and sides experience! The alpaca wool was collected up and will be used to make alpaca products once it has been spun into yarn by local crafters at Spiral Spin in Chichester.
