Alpacas are bred to produce a luxurious fibre like no other. Shearing day is the culmination of weeks of work and months of patiently caring for Alpacas while growing their lustrous fibre. Creswick Woollen Mills is proud to host their 9th annual Alpaca shearing event this September. Alpacas are usually shorn mid to late spring in preparation of the long, hot summers.

It takes great knowledge and skill to shear an Alpaca, so bring the whole family down to experience this memorable occasion together with the breeders, shearers and the Alpacas themselves!

Take the time to enjoy Creswick Woollen Mills newest experience, A Very Fine Yarn and see where the fibre of the alpaca goes after its shorn.
