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.
It is only very recently that knitting yarn made from these beautifully soft superfine fibres have become available. White Gum Wool is one of the first, and one of the finest. Want to know more then read our White Gum Wool Blog
