This is the 2-head dehairing machine. It’s 25 inches wide. This machine is used primarily for taking the guard hair out of animals that have a finer undercoat, such as cashmere, camel, buffalo, etc. It is our opinion, that when fiber has been processed on our carding machine, because of the machine design, most alpaca doesn’t need dehairing. The loss generated by the dehairing machine and the added cost of processing, does not warrant it’s use.
This is the 4-head dehairing machine. It’s 32 inches wide. The additional 2 heads eliminates the need to run the fiber through twice.
