We will be holding a Fibre Clinic in conjunction with South East England Alpaca Group by kind invitation of Hilary and Tony Monkcom of Pinnacle Alpacas, who have now taken over the running of the group. The day will run from 9:30am to 4:30pm and there will be a presentation by Paul Vallely covering:
- Understanding Fibre Test Reports
- Relating Fibre Test Data to actual fleece and using the information for your breeding programme.
- Skirting fleece with practical demonstrations to improve the commercial value.
Additionally, your fibre samples can be bought for testing on the day and there will be a chance to discuss your results with Paul if you wish. If you have already had your samples tested by Art of Fibre, please bring a copy of your reports and you can have these analysed by Paul free of charge.
This will be a fantastic opportunity to meet other breeders and to understand more fully why and how to test your fleeces and use the information in your breeding decisions.
We will also show you how to noodle fleeces, ready for fleece shows and/or processing!
To book your place, please contact: email@example.com or call Hilary on: 07957 689 002
There will be a small charge of £15/person to cover refreshments and lunch.
If you are unable to attend but would like to have your samples tested over this weekend then you can post your samples to our UK address.
Whether bringing your samples to the event, or posting them, we ask that all testing is ordered before-hand. To order fibre testing please click here Order Fibre Testing – Art of Fibre
