The Fibre of our Nation project taps into the endless stories of heritage, custodianship, community and humour amongst people involved with the wool industry.
There were close to 150 submissions entered during the running of the project in 2012. Woolgrowers, woolclassers, shearers, knitters and retailers submitted photographs, stories, poems, videos and even songs to the competition.
The submissions to the project have provided AWI with a wonderful marketing resource to tap into and various entries have already sparked ideas to help sell wool around the world.
The best wool stories including the winning entries have been placed within an online map of Australia for everyone to watch and read.
