A SpinOff is an easy way to compete – mail in just a 2 ounce sample of fleece (which leaves enough of the blanket to be processed or entered in more shows). An experienced judge will spin a small skein and evaluate it according 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 the Oregon Flock and Fiber Festival in September. Fleeces from both 2015 and 2016 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 10. Youth (18 and under) and 4-H members qualify for a reduced entry fee and 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 30th – we’re looking forward to seeing all your wonderful fiber. For complete information and to download the entry tag, visit
