We’ve been farming our merino flock commercially since 1996. Our sheep feed off the natural vegetation on the farm and no antibiotics or growth hormones are used.
Shearing takes place every 8 months with a clip of approximately 20 microns.
We are proud of the quality of our wool and mutton produced and strives to always better it.
Merino Wool Benefits
Merino Wool derives from an ancient breed of sheep named, you guessed it – Merino. The Merino breed of sheep is one of the world’s most ancient sheep and tends to live in very harsh environments, meaning it has to have a very good quality wool coat for protection from the elements. Usually, originating from the mountains of New Zealand, Turkey or South Africa, this breed of sheep is very hardy and survives in conditions which a normal breed of sheep would certainly perish by freezing to death. It makes sense then that the wool from a Merino sheep has essentially adapted to the extremes, offering the sheep a vast amount of insulation, alongside a low weight and many other benefits.
