The MSR will continue to sponsor a spun fiber competition. The divisions and rules for the competition are:
Wool and Other Protein Fibers
Division 1: Fine - 2 oz. skein, spun fine (sport weight or finer)
Division 2: Medium - 3 oz. skein spun medium (worsted weight)
Division 3: Bulky - 4 oz. skein spun bulky

Division 5: Medium - 3 oz. skein spun medium (worsted weight)
Novelty - any fiber blend
Division 6: - 2 oz. skein
Novely yarns differ from other yarns by having deliberately introduced irregularities in their construction, such as variations in thickness and unevenly combined component threads, forming loops, projections, slubs, etc., which provide texture in the final fabric. Color effects are often involved.
Submission muchs include information about fiber used and the proposed end use of the yarn.
