Shearing with Alpacas from Eighth and Mud Farm

  • Alpacas from Eighth and Mud Farm Hamilton, ON

A day-long festival of all things alpaca fiber. Alpacas from Eighth and Mud Farm hosts a shearing event where all can come and see how alpaca shearing is done: the shearing teams who make it happen, the machines that clean, card and twist the fiber into yarns, the hand spinners who too draw down the cleaned fiber into yarn and all the 4H'ers who are learning how to handle the animals in a farm setting.
