The White Gum Story is amazing, when you buy White Gum Wool, you are making a choice that honours the landscape, animals and people who make it possible.
White Gum Wool sheep have never been mulesed, and now they also wag their (undocked) tails behind them.
White Gum Wool is a fine wool that is within the superfine merino range at 17-micron, “Saxon” merino wool. This is the calibre of wool used in the finest of Italian men’s suiting, and gives an amazing softness and handle to the yarn.
Aran or 10ply This wist-on-twist merino makes WGW yarns less susceptible to pilling by using the tighter, more robust twist-on-twist style of plying. A great yarn for beanies, scarves and blankets, it knits up quickly and is very warm and light as a knitted fabric.
