2022 SURI NETWORK FLEECE SHOW

The Suri Network All-Suri Fleece Show is the largest Suri fleece show in the world! Our 2022 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 15th. Please do not mail your fleeces to the Boone County Extension Facility.

Skein and Fiber Arts competitions occur after the Suri Network 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.

FREE PHOTOS of Champion and Special Award winning fleece entrants !  Photos will be suitable for use in advertising their alpacas and farms! (similar to the ones above and below)

Suri owners may want to sponsor an entrant or provide yarn or fleece from their Suris with which the artist can create a piece. Additional Information
