Matt giving instruction at a 2013 seminar

At Best Alpaca Shearing, we’re looking forward to our eleventh year presenting shearing seminars. We’ve helped hundreds of alpaca owners coast to coast gain the knowledge and confidence to shear their own herds. We’ve also been instrumental in launching the careers of over a dozen full time professional shearers. Whether it’s beginning seminars for those just starting, or advanced classes for those needing additional knowledge or fine tuning, Best Alpaca Shearing seminars can get you going!
