2024 SURI NETWORK FLEECE SHOW

The Suri Network All-Suri Fleece Show is the largest Suri fleece show in the world! Our 2024 show is a MAIL-IN Fleece Show and will be judged at the Boone County, Kentucky Extension Facility immediately following the AOA National Fleece Show. Suri Network volunteers will happily transport your fleeces from that show to the Suri Network show for free! Fleeces must be received by Friday, July 12th. Please do not mail your fleeces to the Boone County Extension Facility.

Spin-Off, Skein and Fiber Arts competitions will occur after the Suri Network Fleece Show immediately after the AOA Fleece Show. This will allow competitors to enter their skeins and fiber artwork in both the AOA National Fleece Show as well as the Suri Network Fleece Show.  

THE TRIPLE CROWN - 2024!
THIS EVENT WAS SUCH A SUCCESS IN 2023, WE ARE OFFERING IT AGAIN! GET 3 DIFFERENT SETS OF INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR ALPACA'S 2024 FLEECE BY ENTERING IT IN THESE 3 COMPETITIONS!

  • Enter the AOA National IFA competition occurring immediately prior to the Suri Network Fleece Show
  • Enter the same fleece in the Regular Suri Network Fleece Show
  • Enter the Suri Network Spin-Off- we will pull the sample for the Spin Off competition after it has been judged in the Regular Fleece Show.

    To save exhibitors shipping expenses and to provide an opportunity for them to compete in 3 different events with a single fleece, we are offering to take the Spin-Off sample from the fleece entered in the Regular Fleece Show and ship it to Maureen Macedo for competition in the Spin-Off.

OPEN TO SURI OWNERS WORLDWIDE!
The All Suri Fleece Show is open to any Suri owner, including competitors outside the U.S.A. You do not need to be a Suri Network member!
 
Of course, we hope you will consider joining the Suri Network to enjoy the many benefits we offer including discounted entry fees!
