At A to Z Alpacas we use a leaf blower to clean the alpaca before shearing : A to Z Alpacas

My brother Anthony helped by blowing the alpacas with a large leaf blower before shearing. It removes so much dust , vegetation and poop. So when you get the fiber for spinning you can be assured you are buying fiber and not a pile of dirt :) A to Z Alpacas is in Alberta Canada ! Its my dad's farm and he has almost 300 alpacas ! We shear the alpacas (no harm done ! Just a haircut) each year and make really soft , warm and beautiful alpaca yarns and socks , bedding and more !
