2022 Inaugural AOA Fleece Auction

Alpaca Owners Association, Inc. (AOA) will be holding its first ever Fleece Auction this summer during the AOA National Education and Fiber Conference (NEFC)! This auction will give members a market to sell their quality fleeces. Not only does this give exposure to alpaca fiber but it gives buyers access to quality prize winning fleeces.

For the first year, the auction will accept 30 fleeces. This will include 20 slots for huacaya fleeces and 10 slots for suri fleeces. In the event the slots are not filled, the auction will accept either type of fleece to fill the slots.

The auction will accept fleeces on a first reserved basis providing the following conditions are met:

  • Must be a prize winning fleece in any AOA Certified Show from 2021 – 2022
  • Must have received a score of 80 or above
  • All colors will be accepted
  • Owner must provide copy of score card with fleece

Upon receiving approval for your fleece, you will receive directions on how to submit your fleece. Fleeces must be at the event by Thursday July 14, 2022. Ninety percent of the sell will go to the seller and ten percent to AOA.

Fleeces will be on display during the entire NEFC weekend. Auction will have both live and online bidding. Each fleece will have a bid form at the event and an online presence on Facebook. All bidders must provide their phone number. Online bids will be posted in order based on the posting time and date. Bidding will close at 10:00 a.m. EDT on Sunday, July 17. Winning bidders will be notified by phone and payment made by cash or credit card at that time. The winning buyer can pick up their fleece at the show or pay a fee of $15 to have the fleece shipped.
