“The job – the fleece – the reward”

Alpacas are shorn at the beginning of summer, around October, each year. Samples of fleece are taken from each animal before shearing and sent for quality testing to one of the 2 Wool Testing Laboratories in South Africa

Alpaca Fleece Sorting

Hand-sorting raw Alpaca fleece

During shearing the fleece is sorted into various batches according to micron, the ‘feel and softness’ of the wool as well as colour. The labour-intensive process of cleaning, combing and spinning takes place at a mill (formerly close to Mooi River) Hand-work as well as machines are involved.

The finer fleece – baby fleece – is mostly cleaned by hand and hand-spun into what we call ‘lace yarn’.
