This beautifully soft 4-ply wool is ethically farmed in Tasmania, Australia. With its 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 herbicides, pesticides or fertilisers, the quality feel and handle of this yarn is a product of White Gum Wool's three pillars of commitment: excellence of nutrition, land conservation and animal welfare.
As 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.
Some patterns the Calico and Ivy team love with this beautiful yarn are the Malabar Shawl by Clare Devine and the Kojika Bonnet by Perth designer Alice McCarney of Boris and Stasha.
