Description: A SpinOff is an easy way to compete – you don't have to spin! Just mail in a 2-4 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. Fleeces from both 2018 and 2019 shearings are eligible; there is no limit on the number of entries from one farm. Because 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 Suri and Huacaya and for alpacas 8 and over. Youth (18 and under) and 4-H members qualify for their own division, no entry fee, and are eligible for their own cash prizes. They don't need to actually own the alpaca, and their alpacas don't need to be registered. 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. For complete information and to download the entry tag, visit
Cost: $20; free for Youth/4H
