AAWO (Alpaca Association of Western Oregon) is hosting a fleece evaluation seminar taught by Senior AOA Judge, Amanda VandenBosh.
The seminar is Feb 22 from 8-5 at the Oregon Garden Resort in Silverton Oregon.
The seminar will cover micron assessment and uniformity, identify fleece style, assess fiber development and the tools to help us. We will brainstorm on improving yield, look at fiber grades and evaluate end use and product development to add value to our farm businesses. The seminar is hands on and interactive. Please bring one fleece per farm for review during the seminar. Cost is $50 for AAWO members and $100 for nonmembers. Cost includes the seminar and lunch. The resort hotel has overnight accommodations for those traveling from afar.
