UPDATE – Monday 5th July 2021

The team at the Royal Agricultural Society of WA are disappointed to announce that although the Perth Royal Show will be moving ahead in 2021, due to time constraints required we will not be running the Wool Competition this year. This decision was not made lightly as we value all our competitions and competitors, however with the uncertainty of COVID-19 and lockdowns in 2020/2021 we have been required to amend the competitions available.

We are hopeful for a strong Perth Royal Show in 2021 and dependent upon COVID-19 future restrictions, look forward to offering the Wool Competition again in 2022.

Thank you for the support and best wishes over the past 12 months and we look forward to seeing you and your family at this year’s Perth Royal Show, September 25th to October 2nd.

 


 

There’s nothing like being able to wear beautiful woollen clothing loved by fashion and apparel designers for its quality and versatility.

Merino wool is a natural fibre renowned for being very fine and very soft and our Western Australian farmers enter their supreme fleeces into the annual Perth Royal Show.

Eighty per cent of the world’s fine Merino is produced in Australia and Australian Merino is regarded by many as the finest and softest Merino fleece produced anywhere.

Merino wool:

  • Benefits from natural breathability
  • Keeps you warm in winter yet cool in summer
  • Drapes beautifully and resists creasing
  • Shrugs off stains and keeps its colour when washed
  • Benefits from natural anti-static and anti-odour properties.

Many categories are available for producers to enter fleece into the show:

  • Ultra Fine Fleece
  • Super Fine Fleece
  • Fine Fleece
  • Medium Fleece
  • Strong Fleece

For all those entering fleece into the Perth Royal Show the ultimate goal is to be awarded the Supreme Champion Fleece.

There is nothing like being able to wear beautiful woollen clothing it is loved by fashion and apparel designers for its quality and versatility.
