I put together our shearing order and a check list.
I prepared 4 pre-labeled bags for each of our 17 alpacas... one each for the Blanket, Neck and Legs & Belly fiber and a sandwich bag to collect the sample that we will send out for micron and standard deviation measurement.
I took inventory of the things we will need during the day, put what I have together and made a shopping list for the few items we need to acquire.
I also wrapped up my used combs and cutters to send out for sharpening. On my list for a while now is to get the equipment and learn how to do this myself. There just always seems to be something a little more important. ;-)
There are still a few things to check or complete. Shearing Season starts in one month.
