Hundreds of people made the trip to the Creswick Woollen Mills yesterday to see one of Australia’s best alpaca shearers in action.
Debra Knight drew large crowds as she clipped her way through at least eight alpacas.
Alpacas take a full year to grow their fleece and the work to shear the animals can be heavy.
Crowds filtered into the mills throughout the day, with people arriving from Ballarat and surrounding areas for the event.
Ms Knight is renowned as being an alpaca stylist – the correct term for her form of shearing.
