Ethical Superfine Merino from the Tasmanian Midlands

The story behind White Gum Wool is one of mamas and babies,
of diversity and abundance, and of ethics—for the land, the animals
and the people involved in making this yarn.

We acknowledge the traditional owners of the land on which WGW farm lies, in eastern lutruwita (Tasmania): the tyerrernotepanner, marwemairer, peenrymairmener and rolemairre language groups.

Through our Inclusivity Strategy and Anti-Discrimination Policy we are working actively to provide a safe and welcoming environment for all customers of White Gum Wool.
