Alpacas are sheared annually in the Spring and produce between three and five pounds of fleece in a wide range of colors from white to fawn, brown, gray and black. The animals are not hurt during the shearing and are quite comfortable with their new "hairdo's" and ready for the summer heat. During shearing their 8 toenails are often trimmed and fighting teeth of the males are filed to reduce the chance of them injuring each other.


Warm, luxurious and unique are just 3 characteristics of garments produced from fine alpaca fleece. Unlike sheep wool, alpaca fleece lacks lanolin making it easier and quicker to process into wearable garments. Alpaca is also hypoallergenic - many people who can't tolerate sheep wool enjoy wearing alpaca.
