Welcome...

 

...to the home of the Bothwell International Highland SpinIN & Fibre Festival (BIHSIFF). The biennial SpinIN is a celebration of creativity, experimentation and friendship, centered around wool and other natural fibres. Bothwell is a historic town located in the Southern Highlands of Tasmania with a rich agricultural past; renowned for the fine fleece grown in the area.  We invite you to explore these pages to learn about and become part of a quite unique experience!

The winning entry of the 2017 SpinIN 'Fashions for the Highlands' Design Competition created by Western Australia's Nui Milton of Casalana Fine Wool Farm.

The garment is unique, a work of art. It skilfully joins recycled fabrics and wool from Nui's own farm into this ephemeral creation. Hand craft is evident throughout and the competition brief was clearly answered.

It was a tough decision for the judges and it was these very qualities that moved them to chose this design to set a precedent, direction and a standard to aspire to in future competitions.
