The SWS Fashion Parade is held amongst the judging of the sheep. The idea behind our parade is to visually show the connection between the wool on the sheep’s back and what the girls are wearing. Giving a direct impact on how versatile wool can be and how many looks it can have. As Merino Breeders we are continually trying to show the public that wool can be worn all year round, from babies to the more mature adult, both male and female, for sport, leisure and formal wear. Wool is a quality fibre that is natural, sustainable, odourless, can be wash and wear and will stand the test of time!!
