We have now sheared Prickles, and her wool was 13.6kg, a huge amount for a superfine merino. Although the competition is now over, we encourage you to support the legacy of Prickles and her monumental fleece and continue to donate to this important charity.

“Prickles” was one of the many sheep that ran for her life during the Dunalley bushfire disaster of 2013. She managed to evade us until the April 2020! After seven years of isolation in the bush, Prickles (an expert at social distancing), has grew a monumental fleece. Prickles, and our family, are lucky to be able to isolate safely on our farm during the Covid-19 crisis. It made us think of the millions of people around the world who don't have the option of good sanitation and social-distancing to protect them from the virus.

Imagine the devastation of COVID 19 ravaging through a refugee camp! To help out, our family and Prickles decided to hold a competition to guess the weight of her fleece, with the ‘entry fee’ being a donation of any amount to UNHCR, a charity that supports displaced people.
