2021 Midwest Alpaca Fleece Show Excitement!

Preparing for the Show- Tips & Tricks

Enter only your prime fleece:  fleece from the neck, leg and belly should be removed. 

 

Remove all fiber that does not meet the required 3" length.  Check carefully for short pieces of fiber called "second cuts" and discard them. 

 

Pick out as much of the vegetation and debris as you can without disturbing the character of the fleece.  

 

Refer to AOA Show System Handbook for instructions on noodling show fleeces.
