Mary-Ann English AO Spin-Off Competition


The AO Fibre Promotion Committee would like to thank the five experienced and accomplished hand spinners: Beth Abbot, Kay James, Cindy O'Gorman, Jean Park & Diane R.E. Stewart, who agreed to participate in the first Canadian Spin-off Competition and who so generously and enthusiastically spent their time to spin and evaluate their assigned fibre samples. 71 fibre samples unfurled their story.

Each 50 grams of blanket fleece was spun into yarn by these experienced hand spinners and evaluated as to first impression, uniformity, cleanliness, ease of preparing for spinning, ease of spinning, softness and loft, just to mention a few criteria. Points were allocated and the most accumulated points out of 100 determine placing within each category. Winning spin-off fleeces were displayed at the Alpaca Fibre Fantasy display at the Alpaca Ontario Show in April 2008.
