Another Bendigo Sheep & Wool show has passed in absolutely awful weather – very very cold and wet. On the Saturday night the sheep were almost washed out of the tent.
There were some pleasing results with our fleeces – our white fleece came third in its section and our black fleece came second.
Here is a picture of the fabulous mans’ jumper spun and knitted by Nicki Argon-Olshina for her brother in the USA using this prize winning fleece.
Having spoken for many years about how good Finn wool is for babies and children (because of its low prickle factor) it was very good to see that in the Woolcraft section of the show, the sub section – “Article or garment for a child 0 to 5 years” all places were won using Fairfield Finn fleeces.
First went to Rebecca Marsh for a lovely baby dress.
Second to Sue Tannett for a cute toddlers wrap and hat.
Third went to myself for a shawl made from baby Finn
There were other entries that also won prizes.
