Alpaca and Llama Shearing

By Shear Diligence


The schedule for the 2013 shearing season is now open! The calendar fills up quickly, so please contact us as soon as possible to book your shearing.


Welcome! We provide the most complete shearing service you will find! Each alpaca receives a quality cut, toenails are trimmed, and the fiber is bagged into separate grades, all for one low price! 


Our goal is to shear in a manner that minimizes stress and maximizes your fiber harvest. Each animal is handled with care and we use a safe, secure restraining system. When it comes to the fleece, our goal is to remove your prime marketable fiber with minimal second-cuts and/or contamination from lesser quality fiber (3rds). Unless otherwise specified, the blanket is removed in one piece, and all three grades of fiber (blanket, 2nds, and 3rds) are bagged separately. The legs, topknot, and tail will also be trimmed so that the finished cut looks clean and balanced.


We welcome your questions and enquiries! Please contact us for more information or to book your shearing!
