The F Factor is a new initiative to highlight the beauty and versatility of Australian Alpaca Fibre and the talents of our crafty AAA members. We want to engage and inspire the public and increase the demand for Australian Alpaca. Spin, weave, felt, knit and crochet to create something unique and write a brief description about how and why you made it with alpaca. This description is as important as the completion of the item and will form an integral part of the competition.
All entries will be displayed at The Australian Alpaca Spectacular and reviewed by members of an expert panel, with comments on the show ring microphone and photos beamed up onto the big screen. Your creations will receive prime exposure, rather than just stuck out the back on a static display. The public will be asked to vote on their favourites so it becomes less about technical execution and more about creativity and inspiration.
Prizes will be awarded to both exhibitors and voters. This competition is replacing the various craft sections offered at previous National Shows. The only rule is the item must be made from Australian Alpaca!
