Learn to Shear Manual $25
||Shearing your own cria with ease
This 1 day class is a very involved day, 9 a.m. till we are finished, limited to 4 participants, so all can get the personalized time I believe is needed for the participants to get the hands on attention that creates a safe and calm environment. Shearing can be taught by the table method or on the ground stretch method, only one will be covered per day. I attempt to get each person to shear 1 alpaca each, more will be available if class moves along. Suri and Huacaya are available to learn on but I am limited in Suri so 1 class will be held for Suri. The cost is $275 which includes a copy of my "Comprehensive Guide to Shearing the Alpaca" it covers shearing a alpaca from beginning to end and then some. Also included a pair of gloves, apron and lunch from one of the local establishments we have great food available. I cover all equipment info and a wide variety of the tricks I have learned to make your shearing day an easy day.
For now I will not set which day for Suri to see if I can accommodate more people I am always game on setting up another date for Suri earlier in the season even on a weekday if available.
Due to the limited space a refundable deposit $100 is required to hold a spot. Upon receipt of deposit I will send the copy of my manual. If you cannot attend your scheduled class you may reschedule for a class in the same season. If this cannot be achieved a refund of $65 will be mailed immediately.
Thank you for showing interest in shearing, it is all about the fleece and how much usable fleece is harvested from these cool creatures hope you can join me in my adventure, feel free to call or email with any other questions.
