Nashville, TN — June 7, 2018 — Since the United States first commercially imported alpacas in 1984, alpaca breeders have worked hard to produce offspring with the finest, softest, most lustrous fleece.

Until recently the primary focus of the industry was on breeding to build a national herd of superior fleece producing livestock able to compete in the global market. The time has come to focus on the fleece!

The inaugural 2018 Alpaca Owners Association (AOA) Natural Fiber Extravaganza sponsored by Long Hollow Suri Alpacas/ New Era Fiber takes place July 13-15 at the Wilson County Exposition Center in Lebanon, TN and will feature a variety of workshops and seminars for seasoned alpaca producers, natural fiber enthusiasts and those interested in learning more about alpacas, their fleece and the many products made from alpaca fleece.
