Otter Peaks Alpacas invited three other alpaca farms to join in as the farm brought in a professional shearing team to shear their alpacas.
John and Cindy Ferrante, who own Otter Peaks, have 22 alpacas.
Alpacas are domesticated camelids that were bred in the Andes Mountains for very thick, wooly coats. Alpaca wool is warmer than sheep’s wool and is not prickly. It is also hypoallergenic because it does not contain lanolin. Alpaca wool is flame resistant.
