Show Rules

A fleece may be entered in just the show, or entered for show and sale. ($4 show, $6 show and sale) Fleeces must be well skirted and packaged in a clear plastic bag. Remove all tags, neck and belly wool, and any heavily vegetation areas. Any improperly skirted or very dirty fleeces may be disqualified without refund of the entry fee.

All fleeces will be removed from the bag for judging.

All fleeces must have been shorn in 2016 or 2017, represent 12 months or less growth, and come from an animal owned by the exhibitor.

The judge will have the right to add or eliminate classes as necessary, and may reclassify fleeces if improperly entered.

Judging will be based on the Danish system. Each fleece will be judged on its own merits and awarded a blue, red or white ribbon accordingly.

Ribbons and premiums for Icelandic Fleeces are provided by the Icelandic Sheep Breeders of North America.

All fleeces must be displayed following judging.
