Another Bendigo Sheep & Wool show

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.

Black & Colored Fleece competition. Second place.

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.
