Fleece Shows

Fleece Shows have long been a part of Fibre Week.  We're happy to host the fleece shows of our Fleece Show Partner organizations.

This year, 3 shows are joining us, courtesy of their organizers:

  • The Llama Canada Llama Fleece Show
  • The Custom Woolen Mills Wool Fleece Show
  • The Spring Harvest Farm Mohair Fleece Show

As more details are available about these shows, we will share them with you here, including show rules, entry forms, and additional information.

Generally speaking, the shows are judged in a public format to provide an educational opportunity with a variety of animal fibres for the general public.  Producers can also learn more about their own fibre and the expectations / requirements of the Fibre Arts community while accessing an excellent venue for marketing and sales.

The Fleece Show and Sale will be available to the public over the weekend.
