G’day from Australia

Great Ocean Road Woollen Mill is a boutique spinning mill located in the hinterland of the Great Ocean Road, Victoria, Australia. We pride ourselves on being incredibly sustainable: 95% of our power comes from our solar setup and we wash only using rainwater and a low phosphate detergent, with the waste water keeping our orchard green and healthy. We source all our fibre directly off farmers, most of whom live within one hour of our property/mill. Our yarns have the lowest carbon footprint of any commercially produced yarn in Australia, about 225km from farm to scourer to us (the alpaca travels even less distance, being washed by us on site).

Our yarns are yarns with heart. They are small-batch runs, designed to highlight the amazing work Australia does in growing some of the best fibre in the world. The merino we use is 17.5 microns, making it incredibly soft and luxurious, ideal for next-to-skin projects, or just that lovely cuddle factor. All of our fibre is traceable and every yarn has a story behind it: who grew it, where it was grown and how it was transformed into yarn, ready for you to use and love.

Our business is the true definition of small business. It is just my husband, Nick, and I, Isabel, who do everything from sourcing the fibre, processing the fibre and selling the yarn. Every time someone buys our yarn they become part of our story. To find out more, get in touch and say G’day!
