Fox & Lillie Rural’s 20/20 Vision Fleece to Fashion Wool Study Tour

Fox & Lillie Rural is delighted to offer you the opportunity to visit Vietnam and China in June on our 20/20 Vision Fleece to Fashion wool study tour.

The tour will depart Australia on the 10th June and return the 23rd June. 

The 12-day tour will take you through each step of the wool journey, where you will witness the many ways in which wool is used, whilst exploring a selection of historical and cultural sites that both Vietnam and China have to offer.

Fox & Lillie’s extensive network gives our tours access to a vast cross-section of mills and information like no other, ensuring a unique and valuable experience that will last you a lifetime.

 

Testimonials from our clients who have attended tours:

“We would like to thank Fox & Lillie for the opportunity to travel to China and witness first-hand the many ways in which Australian wool is used. To see raw wool from the bale processed into yarn, woven and then made into different types of fashion garments was very eye opening.

The whole experience broadened our understanding of the wool industry way beyond our farm gate.

Since returning we have made several changes to the way we operate our wool farming business on the basis of what we learned. We have tripled our merino ewe flock and have begun shearing every six months.

One of the highlights was the terrific group of like-minded woolgrowers that we were privileged to travel with; we would travel with any or all of you again in a heartbeat.
We would highly recommend any woolgrower taking advantage of a Fox & Lillie guided trip.”

“My experience of travelling to China, Vietnam and Hong Kong with Fox & Lillie Rural on their 2016 tour was not only highly informative but also a lot of fun!

We visited businesses and facilities that were highly indicative of every step in the different wool processing systems. This opportunity enhanced my knowledge of how the wool supply chain works from greasy wool right through to high quality fabrics and garments.

The accommodation, food, cultural experiences and sight-seeing were excellent and very well organised due to the meticulous planning put in by the team at Fox & Lillie Rural.”
