Are you looking for sustainable luxurious yarns for knitting and crocheting?
Welcome to the Great Ocean Road Woollen Mill!
At the Great Ocean Road Woollen Mill, we are a small family business dedicated to producing ethical yarn. Through our purpose build mill facility, we collect and bring together quality, natural fibres to create soft and silky yarns. By collecting only the finest fibres from the hinterland of the Great Ocean Road, we create yarns that are traceable and sustainable, contributing to the local Australian manufacturing industry.
By choosing to purchase incredibly soft yarns through us, you are not only receiving a high-quality yarn, but you are also supporting an Australian grown product, and shopping consciously. We provide an ethical product that doesn’t compromise on quality.
Natural, quality yarns
As our delightful yarns are natural in colour, they won’t fade over time and will create beautiful knitted and crocheted items that will maintain their quality for the long-term. This also means that we don’t use harsh or harmful chemicals to dye our yarn, as it is naturally coloured so you can wash your yarn without fear or its colour running or altering.
How are our yarns created?
At Great Ocean Road Woollen Mill, we work to lower our carbon footprint as much as possible in all stages of our yarn creation. For example, we use solar panels to power our mill and can proudly announce that 95% of the energy we used last year was created by our own solar panels. The washing system we use to clean our yarn is collected rainwater, and as we never use harsh chemicals, after washing, the rainwater is used to water our orchard.
We are living proof sustainable yarn is a reality
Although we are a small family business, at Great Ocean Road Woollen Mill, we prove that sustainable yarn is achievable. If you’d like to knit or crochet a project that is ethically-sourced, you can trust the Great Ocean Road Woollen Mill for luxurious, sustainable yarn. Our yarn is available in small-batch creations and numerous different colours so no matter what you wish to design or create, we are the yarn company to trust.
