Alpacas from Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia will be featured in the show ring competition. The show will be comprised of classes judging conformation and fleece quality in many categories for both Suri and Huacaya alpacas.
Throughout the weekend, artisans will showcase alpaca fiber and examples of felting, fiber arts and more. Dozens of vendors and farm displays will sell the latest alpaca fashions and hand-crafted items.
Old favorites such as the Hand-Crafter’s Spin-off and Photo Contest are still a big part of the festivities.
Fiber Arts/ Skein Competition
For the first time ever, the Southern Select Alpaca Show will host a Fiber Arts/ Skein Competition. This competition is open to the public. You do not have to have alpacas to participate, but you must use 50% alpaca in your artwork/skein.
Free Spinners/Project Circle
Bring your wheel or spindle to sample FREE spinning fibers. Not interested in spinning? That’s okay – just bring whatever “fiber-y” project you are working on and join us for conversation, sharing and companionship.
With a variety of beautiful alpacas, great vendors and fiber activities all in one convenient location, this is sure to be fun for all!
