What's New In 2019

All new judging criteria for Black & Coloured fleece  

The Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria is proud to announce an innovative change to the 2019 Royal Melbourne Show Fleece Competition.

To recognise the increasing professionalism of Black & Coloured woolgrowers, this year we will be judging the Black & Coloured Fleece using the same National Council of Wool Selling Brokers points scale that is used for the white fleeces.

We also introduce a new award  in the Black & Coloured fleece Competition ‘the fleece most suitable for craft.’ This award recognises the most valuable use of Black & Coloured wool.  

Entries for the 2019 Fleece Competition open on Tuesday 7 May.
