Continuing this philosophy, the mill is partially powered by solar, in fact our entire summer’s production was powered by the sun!
Even the carbon footprint of our fibre is incredibly low. What we don’t produce ourselves is only sourced from within Victoria, or eastern South Australia. Even the scoured wool we source is produced on sheep farms within an 80 km radius of our mill and is scoured in Victoria.
We strongly believe that natural fibres deserve a natural production process. At Great Ocean Road Woollen Mill, we prove that yarn making can be environmentally friendly, can be sustainable, and can be local. We live off our land and therefore want a healthy, happy farm, producing great yarns and great produce. Come for a visit and see for yourself.
