Hilary and Tony Monkcom have now taken over the running of the South East Alpaca group and would like to thank Vicki and Chris Agar for all they have done over the years.

As we strive to get this group up and running again after a dormant period, If you would like to join or be kept informed of events please contact us on

or  07957 689 002

To kick off events!

We will be holding a Fibre Clinic in conjunction with Art of Fibre on Saturday 1st July 2023 at Pinnacle Alpacas 9:30am – 4:30pm where 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 fleece samples can be brought for testing on the OFDA 2000 machine.

This will be a fantastic opportunity to meet other breeders and to understand more fully why and how to test your fleeces and using the information in your breeding decisions.

We will also show you how to noodle fleeces, ready for fleece shows and/or processing!

This opportunity is open to all but we especially hope that breeders in South East and the Southern region of the UK will want to come along!

To book your place, please contact:

Or call Hilary on: 07957 689 002

There will be a small charge of £15/person to cover refreshments and lunch.
