Alpaca-Shearing at Rainbow's End

Alpacas must be sheared for their health, and their wool is a valuable commodity. Check out Rainbow Gifts & Yarn, at their shop or online, to see some of the beautiful products made with the 'paca wool. The shearing is open to the public, and you are welcomed to join the somewhat rambunctious event. This is a bit fast-paced, as well as on the noisy side, so be prepared for the fun! 2015's shearing was on Thursday, May 14th; watch for this year's date--and, watch for dates of other events held at Rainbow's End throughout the year!
