The Fleece Show on Saturday will include both wool and specialty fibers. Wool judging will start at 10 a.m., and specialty fibers judging will follow. Wool growers may submit one fleece in each of the following categories: white or colored; and within those divisions, fine, medium, coarse; long; and primitive/dual-coated. Specialty fiber growers may submit one fleece in each of the following categories: alpaca and llama—white, colored, and cria (under one year at time of shearing); goat—adult and kid mohair, cashmere, pygora, and cashgora. The fee for each entry is $3. Angora rabbit fiber in appropriate containers may be submitted for a fee of $1.50 per container. For further information about submitting fiber to the sale and/or show, please contact Penelope Olson at 785-2784 (Appleton) or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Knowing that variety is the key to a good sale, the Spinners encourage all interested growers to take part. Growers wishing to pre-register should contact Penelope Olson, 785-2784 or email@example.com, to let us know how many fleeces you plan to submit so we can send you the right number of tags and registration forms. When you get them, please fill out the tags and forms as completely as possible. There is no need to return anything. Simply submit your tags and forms when you deliver your fleeces to the Fleece Tent.
Fleeces may be submitted from 1:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, September 24th, and will also be accepted at any other time during the Fair. During the weekend, cars may be driven onto the Fairgrounds in the morning for delivery of fleeces, but they must off the grounds by 8:30 a.m. For those unable to pre-register, there will be a supply of registration materials available at the Fleece Tent throughout the weekend.
