The story behind White Gum Wool

White Gum Wool sheep are raised and live their whole life on a single farm in the high midlands of Tasmania.  Lush pasture for grazing and good animal husbandry results in happy healthy sheep.  White Gum Wool sheep have never been mulesed or had their tails docked.

The Genetics of the sheep and the excellent environment they’re raised in means their fleece is;

Soft – average 17 micron superfine merino
Long staple – the longer staple means less short fibres when spun, therefore less short ends poking out and less inclination to pill.
Dense – more usable fibre per fleece.
High Tensile Strength – makes for a strong spun product with increased durability.
High Comfort Factor – for wool to be comfortable next to the skin it needs to be less than 21 microns, White Gum Wool averages 17 microns.

So, when you buy White Gum Wool, you are making a choice that honours the landscape, animals and people who make it possible.
