After shearing, James looked much smaller than before shearing! Alpacas in full fiber look much heavier than they are--adult males weigh between 140-180 pounds. In October 2011, James weighed 144 pounds.
Check out the shearing information to see what James looked like before he was sheared! This is his fiber. I was going to send it to a fiber show, but never got around to it, so his fiber from the 2012 and 2013 shearing is still available in the store.
