MISTY Hills stud, Kojonup, has exhibited the supreme champion fleece at this year's IGA Perth Royal Show.

The fleece was sashed ahead of 180 other entries from WA this week.

Despite slightly less entries than 2007's competition, mainly due to seasonal conditions, the fleeces' overall presentation was of exceptional quality and stronger textile strength than last year's hopefuls.

The very stylish, bright white supreme fleece scored 14 out of 15 points on handle, 14 out of 15 for character and style, and finished on 100pc for its colour.

Chief judge and Elders wool marketing manager Ken Walker said Misty Hills' entry was a very stylish, well grown fleece.

"Its fleece weight to micron ratio was commercially extremely good," Mr Walker said.

The fleece measured 15.2 microns, had a 99.9pc comfort factor, a 110mm staple length, 48N/Kt staple strength, a 73pc yield and had a greasy fleece weight of 5.2kg.

The win for the Meatons added to their tally of five supreme championships in the wool judging at the show and marked the first time they had taken out the supreme double from the Wagin Woolorama and the show.
