2017 AOA National Fleece Conference

July 14–16, 2017 Marriott Rancho Cordova, Sacramento, California
We are lucky to have our National Alpaca Owners of America Fleece Conference in our own backyard this year. If you have an interest in learning more about alpaca fleece and what you can do with it, plan to attend this conference! $150. It will have great educational speakers at it. Simultaneously, there is a National Fleece Show, where we submit fleece for judging in different categories. We are submitting some of our fiber for a category called a “Spin-off”.

This is where a sample of our fleece is sent to a judge, and she hand-spins it into yarn. Each submission is rated for its specific qualities. If you attend, come look for our results at the spin-off competition. This portion of the Show is free to attend. We will compete against all of the U.S.alpaca owners to see just how well our breeding program is doing. We already know (through lab testing) that we have over 6 alpacas that consistently rank in the top 1% in the U.S. in several categories, including fineness. Come see us if you want to buy some of the best alpaca fiber in the U.S. We have it! Hope to see you soon! And for you alpaca breeders, we offer great rates on getting these genetics into your herd!
