Alpaca Shearing Day & Sale
May 27 - 28, 2017
21345 SW Aebischer Rd
Take a break from the Memorial Day Winery Tours to watch the alpacas get their annual haircuts. Get up close, hand feed them, and handle their luxurious fleece.
Shearing Day is Saturday. On Sunday, make a felted alpaca item. Phone Susanne at 503-348-6954 to reserve a spot. $25-$75 covers your materials and instruction.
Both days, you can shop for teddy bears, sweaters, scarves, & other alpaca products, many hand-crafted.
Hand-spinners, knitters, & other fiber artists will find fleece and yarn. Many of the yarns are in one of the alpacas’ natural colors, spun from the fleece of a single animal. Bring your camera and get a shot of the alpaca who provided the raw material for your next project.
Visitors can chat with four long-time livestock breeders who've raised llamas, horses, sheep, and goats. They've found that alpacas are a perfect match for owners of small acreages or for crafters looking for their own four-legged fiber producers. Both farms offer alpacas for sale along with boarding options.
