Fleece Show & Innovative Fleece Assessment

Register and submit your fleeces for the National Fleece Show before June 3 in order to receive discounted Early Bird pricing. General registration will end on June 21, 2021.

This year we will also be bringing back the Innovative Fleece Assessment (IFA), a new and scientific method for fleece judging that focuses more on the potential end product of the fleece. There are a limited number of spaces available for entries, so register soon to secure your spot. Registration for IFA will run until June 21, or until all places are filled.

Fiber Arts & Skeins

Show off your skill and creativity by submitting your creations to the National Fiber Arts & Skeins show. Entries must consist of 50% alpaca fiber and should be shipped separately from fleece entries. Registration will be open until June 21, 2021. Entries can be shipped or brought directly to the show.
