Wool technology student Hope Duncan has put together an exhibition on the NZ crossbred industry.

Duncan says she has spent the last year researching New Zealand's crossbred industry to create a small exhibition to try and draw attention to this "phenomenal fibre, material and industry".

“I am keen to let those involved in the industry, particularly the growers, know that someone out there is rooting for them and trying to get more people wanting their fantastic fibre.”

The exhibition is displayed in the Dunedin School of Arts graduate exhibition, called SITE. The exhibition runs until Thursday the 29th of November and everyone is welcome.
