There is only one week left to register your fleeces for the 2020 AOA National Fleece Show. Registration closes Thursday, June 25, 2020, at midnight Pacific Time. All mail-in entries need to arrive no later than July 6. Take advantage of this opportunity to compete in the largest alpaca fleece show in North America!

Innovative Fleece Assessment

We are also launching a new fleece competition called the Innovative Fleece Assessment (IFA). The IFA is different in that it places fleeces into grade categories for competition and judges them relative to their potential end-product. You can view a more in-depth explanation in this video.
