20th JAN – What is skirting, how to do it & why preparation is vitally important.
“What is skirting, how to do it & why preparation is vitally important”.
Emma Taylor ~ East Anglia Mill, UK.
Emma and Chris built East Anglia Alpaca Mill some 11 years ago having discovered that they were unable to process their soon to be first clip from their initial 11 alpacas. The Mill is totally dedicated to alpaca meaning we process only huacaya & suri fibre & we specialise in small batches with no minimum batch size. We have endeavoured to honour the ethos of the alpacas themselves in our processing methods.
In this presentation, as an alpaca owner and a professional mill owner, Emma will step through the process of fleece skirting and preparation for processing and showing, and explain why good skirting is so important.
