@alpacaxy What color is your alpacasso? I have two large alpacasso, one white rainbow series and one brown heartful. The brown one (named Coco) seems to be a different texture from the white one (Chib Chib). When I brush Coco his fur comes out sometimes, just like you described, but Chib Chib NEVER sheds, and neither do my offbrand babies with similar fur. I think maybe it just depends on the alpaca?

and btw I have one swimmer alpaca lint brush from Rosy and one regular one from Ebay. So I don't think it's the brush...

I think it might actually be some type of high density foam that they used in the early kids but I'll have to double check mine when I get home. idk if that will affect the washing process too much or not.

Does anyone know how to remove the scratches from the eyes and make them shiny again?

A couple of mine have scratched eyes and a while back I bought some black nail polish to see if that would work!
I havent tried it yet, but when I do i'll let you know

Oh my goodness I've been away for awhile and I'm only just seeing this now, sorry ;w;

If I don't remember wrong the shedding happened with my 2013 Christmas series pacas (3 white and 1 pink, all large). Hmm I never considered that the shedding could be due to different fur textures! But you're right, it could be a possibility!

Btw Chib Chib is such a cute name xD

I don't know if I'm the only one but does anyone else use the harsh, traditional method of hand washing clothes and then hanging them under the heat of the sun? I have observed that the fur on mine turns very fluffy after owo

I've considered but never tried this! How long do your alpacas take to dry under the sun? I don't have a dryer and the weather's kinda iffy here so I'm not keen on fully soaking my alpacas in case the sun's not out and I can't get them to dry /:

I hang (yes, hang) them until the sun sets. I start washing them in the morning so one day.
