Fibre Zone Competitions and Fibre To Product awards.

The BAS National Show will once again be hosting the hugely popular Fibre Zone Competition, sponsored by Penrose Products.  This year entries will include; garments, toys, yarns, household items and fabrics, or why not be daring and enter something unique into the open category.

As you think about what you would like to enter in these competitions….

Consider what makes the alpaca unique over other animal products and how best to convey those properties in what you make. How can you exploit the true ‘Alpacareyness’ of the fibre and show that in your product design?

Additionally…. The Penrose ‘Fibre to Product’ trophy will be awarded to an entry in any category in the Fibre Zone or in the wider show that demonstrates particular ingenuity or promise to moving from artisan one-off products toward something commercially scalable that has not been seen with British alpaca before. There will also be a runner up trophy awarded.

See the Fibre Zone page of the website for more details…
