Beyond the Bale : December 2015
OFF FARM 25 Emma Clapham’s post on Instagram in which she poses with the AFL premiership cup wool scarf she designed. As part of her role as ambassador of AWI’s Fibre of Football campaign, Emma Clapham – partner of Geelong Cats footballing star and campaign ambassador Tom Hawkins – this year designed a limited edition Australian Merino wool scarf in the colours of the premiership cup. Emma Clapham is the grand-daughter of legendary Boonoke studmaster Basil Clapham. Both Emma and Tom are from the Riverina district of NSW, with Emma being brought up in Deniliquin and Tom coming from a wool, cropping and rice property in Finley, NSW. “My Grandfather was one of Australia's greatest stud masters of the Merino breed and has helped design what wool is today, so this is a huge honour to be a part of and means a lot to my family,” Emma said. “Fibre of Football is all about highlighting the deep and ongoing connections between our national game and our natural fibre.” The scarf – now sold out – was available at the ‘AFL Women's Style Lounge’ which was a fun-filled marquee, catering to the female AFL fan, open in the MCG precinct during the four day AFL Grand Final festival.
