Ermenegildo Zegna awarded the “Extrafine Wool Trophy” and the “Vellus Aureum Trophy” to superior quality woolgrowers in Australia and New Zealand, recently at an event hosted by Paolo Zegna, Chairman of the Zegna Group.

For the 2016 edition of the “Extrafine Wool Trophy” the 1st place went to Ed and Jill Hundy (Pyramul, Mudgee, NSW), the 2nd to Allan and Carolyn Phillips (Deddington, TAS), and the 3rd to Andrew and Penny Hundy (Mudgee, NSW). For the “Vellus Aureum Trophy”, David and Susan Rowbottom (St. Helens, VIC) won both the 1st and 3rd places while Bradley Sandlant (Lexton, VIC) was awarded the 2nd place.

“We’ve been celebrating the best quality wool since 1963 and it is always a pleasure to award the efforts and achievements of the woolgrowers,” said Paolo Zegna.

He further said, “Deep thanks go to the Australian Superfine Wool Growers’ Association and all those that have contributed in making this year edition of the trophies a success in terms of number of participant fleeces and of their very high quality. Our congratulations go to the winners and to each of the entrants. Supporting, understanding and promoting the commitment, skills and processes of growing superfine merino is a must for us: we would like all our Zegna consumers to be aware and to highly appreciate that.”

The winning fleeces were judged according to a severe series of criteria like fineness, style, strength and evenness.

The incredible quality of fine wool allows Ermenegildo Zegna to continually improve the beauty and the performance of its products. Superfine wool is indeed the key to some of its best and most prestigious fabrics. For this reason, the Group established the first “Ermenegildo Zegna Extrafine Wool Trophy” in 1963.

The “Vellus Aureum Trophy” followed almost 50 years later, when it was launched in 2002 to recognize the quest for absolute excellence by benchmarking the finest woollen fleeces in the world that measures 13.9 micron and less. (HO)
