Basic Fiber, Sorting & Grading Class

October 7, 2016


Workshop content will be focused on the practicality and benefits of proper fiber preparation at the farm level prior to processing. The class will help producers overcome the intimidating task of sorting and grading fleeces on the way toward higher yield and higher revenues. The best and most profitable utilization for each grade of fiber will be highlighted and instructor Labrecque will teach participants how to design and use their own grading/sorting reference kits. 


Advanced Sorting & Grading Workshop

October 14 - 16, 2016  



This workshop is geared toward the individual who wants more in-depth education.  After a quick review or the Basic workshop information the mornings will e more didactic and the afternoons are hands-on with the instructors giving immediate feedback on what you are seeing in fiber.

Students will have the opportunity to examine alpaca and wool plus other fiber types that are available.

This is a fast-paced, supportive learning environment with individual attention for each student.

This workshop will have a regional sort immediately following the class.  All students are encouraged to participate and to get the experience immediately.


The October 8 - 10th, 2016 Advanced class is closed.  We do offer another class the following weekend October 14 - 16.  Please call 518.255.5528 to reserve your spot.
