All About the Fibre #2

Today saw the second part of the West Shires Alpaca Group ‘All About The Fibre’ session, and we went south in the region to Apperley village hall in Gloucestershire. We had another good turn out and discussed selling wholesale, commercial processing and processing by hand and the various routes to market and what’s worked well for different people. Thank you to everyone for sharing their experiences and knowledge – lots of food for thought.

Talking of food we were also well supplied with plenty of yummy home made cake 🍰 and tea and coffee too!

Hopefully it was a helpful session that shed some light on what you can do with your fibre and the many choices of processes it can go through – a key theme running through the session is to always ‘start with the end in mind’ so that you make clear decisions on which processes you put your harvest through, drive efficiency and optimise your return.

Look out for the follow-up info sheet which will be available shortly.

Looking forward to the mill visit – date for your diary: 11th May at The Mill at Clivewood, Shropshire.
