White Gum Wool:
White Gum Wool is our hero yarn. This ethically grown Australian merino is spun into squishy, velvety soft yarn which we proudly offer in three yarn weights: 4ply (fingering), 8ply (DK) and Bouclé (Bulky). We also have a new sock yarn with 80% White Gum Wool Merino / 20% nylon adding extra strength without compromising on softness.

White Gum Wool is suitable for all manor of garments, particularly baby items and next-to-the-skin accessories. It is also suitable for felting.

White Gum Wool sheep are raised on a single farm by Nan Bray, in the high midlands of Tasmania.
