Bob Scambler Wins Best in Class in Fleece competition

Cornish Organic Wool, jointly with the Natural Fibre Company, presented a prize at the Royal Cornwall Show for the best organic fleece.

This was the first competition of its kind at Royal Cornwall and was judged by Mark Powell, from The Wool Marketing Board.Matt and Julia Hopson, from Cornish Organic Wool, were particularly delighted that Bob Scambler from Bosigran Farm, Zennor won ‘Best Organic Fleece’. Bob, who supplies all of his wool to Cornish Organic Wool also won ‘Best Overall Fleece’ in its class.This was an exceptional result as Bob’s organic fleece was competing with the best non-organic fleece.

Matt said, “Bob will be shearing the rest of his organic flock in the coming days and, if this winning quality fleece is anything to go by, this year’s shearing will make wonderful knitting yarn.The shearing will be spun this autumn and we’ll make sure that everyone knows it won first prize at Royal Cornwall”.

Matt continued, “In the wider sense this is a great achievement for organic farming.There has been a belief that organic fleeces (because the sheep aren’t treated with any chemicals) cannot possibly be as good as non-organic fleeces.Bob has shown, emphatically, that this is not the case and we are hoping that more organic farmers will enter our competition next year and, once again, demonstrate that organic fleeces can win the day!”.
