Alpaca Association of Western Oregon 2019 Spin Off

AAWO Spin Off is Back for 2019!

A SpinOff is an easy way to compete – mail in just a 2-4 ounce sample of fleece (which leaves enough of the blanket to be entered in more shows). An experienced judge will spin a small skein and evaluate it according to fineness, handle, ease of preparation, and other desirable characteristics, giving you valuable feedback. Plus, your alpaca’s fleece and your farm name will be viewed by thousands of visitors to Oregon Flock & Fiber Festival.

Fleeces from both 2018 and 2019 shearings are eligible; there is no limit on the number of entries from one farm. Since we want to be inclusive, you don't have to be an AOA or AAWO member.

We have $100 cash awards for Judge’s Choice in both suri and huacaya, plus suris and huacayas over 8. Youths (18 and under) and 4-H members can enter for free and qualify for more cash prizes.

So check out your fleeces – those stored from last year and those still on your animals – and get them ready to send. Our deadline is June 28th – we’re looking forward to seeing all your wonderful fiber.
