The 8ply staple from White Gum Wool, this lovely soft wool is ethically farmed in Tasmania, Australia. With it's sustainable production process, certified by NewMerino, White Gum Wool is an example of some of Australia's best superfine wool. At 17 microns it's wonderfully soft on the skin and an absolute joy to work with.
Dyed in a colour range inspired by the beautiful landscape of the Tasmanian Midlands, this yarn feels good on the skin while doing good for our world. From a farm that uses no chemical herbicides, pesticides or fertilisers, the quality feel and handle of this yarn is a product of White Gum Wool's 3 pillars of commitment; excellence of nutrition, land conservation and animal welfare.
An anti-discrimination business focused on inclusivity and diversity, the story of White Gum Wool is close to our hearts at Calico and Ivy. We are proud to be the only Perth stockist of this authentically Australian yarn.
The Calico and Ivy team love this 8ply yarn for the Oatlands Beanie, designed by Perth's own Alice McCarney of Boris and Stasha, from the White Gum Wool Wrapped Collection.
