Sorting & Grading Alpaca Fiber

Learn how to get the best out of each fleece by sorting and skirting it to get to it’s full potential and the reasoning behind it.  We will be hands-on with one of your fleeces or one of ours showing why we skirt a fleece a certain way based on what we want to do with it.  This basic education can be applied to almost any type of fleece to enhance the quality of your fiber and finished products.  Class will range from 3-4 hours.  $50 per person
