Spring and shearing

Spring and warmer weather is in the air, but this year exceptionally slowly carefully approaching us. We couldn’t wait for warmer temperatures so allowed the sheep and their newborn lambs to leave the barn.

And then came the day that has been planned weeks ago with Swedish shearing Master “Hjalle”: the shearing of Finland’s alpacas, including De Akkerweide’s 5 alpacas. Now, our alpaca girls are very slender again, and little Inka looks so little and fragile…

After snow melted away, De Akkerweide paysages are still in their brown sleep, waiting for the birches to unfold their green and the corn to start growing.
