Charnwood Forest Alpacas

GUARANTEE your choice of shearing date

As with many owners, we encountered some difficulties with shearing last year. As a result, we have decided to shear our own herd of 70 alpacas and also offer our services to localised clients.

We understand your frustrations with not knowing an exact day of shearing and not being able to book time off work. We also appreciate that some practices can cause unnecessary stress to these sensitive animals (as well as to their owners!)

Based on experiences and requirements for our own herd, we are now able to offer you

A premium service tailored to the particular needs of your alpacas
Guaranteed date booked in advance and chosen by you
Friendly, caring service designed to minimise stress to you and your animals
A speed that allows us to care for the alpacas and your fleece
FREE toenail clipping
FREE health check (not veterinary) based on experiences with our own herd
FREE guidance on weight, parasites and body score condition
FREE guidance on the quality of your fleece and grading of fibre (BAS trained)
Additional husbandry available on request including injections and teeth trimming
