We are happy to advise that we have secured long term supply of our wool, and are busily knitting with certified Tasmanian grown 20.5 micron Pure Merino Wool.
A scarce and luxuriously soft fibre, Tasmanian Merino is the product of nature. Careful environmental stewardship, and over 180 years of knowledge and experience. Since 1829, Tasmanian wool growers have consistently produced some of the world’s finest merino wool, admired for it’s unique natural qualities. More than 40% of Tasmania, a remote island below mainland Australia, is either World Heritage listed or National Park, recognising and protecting the vast natural wilderness areas. Officially boasting the world’s cleanest air, pure fresh water and four distinct seasons. Tasmania provides the ideal conditions for growing luxury fine merino wool. Happy sheep = good wool.
Tasmania is free from GMOs in food and fibre production.
Wear our pure wool stuff with a warm fuzzy glow.
We source the yarn for our Tuff Mongrel heavy duty socks from Schoeller Spinning Group – Germany. The Climawool* they produce is the best we have found for replicating the qualities of Pure Wool but also adding a lightness and longevity making this a true high performance yarn. Schoeller’s hard won G.O.T.S and Blue Sign certification demonstrates their commitment to getting it right for the planet too.
We are keen recyclers and do our best to recycle as much waste as possible. Recycling our cardboard boxes, plastic bags and re-using them, where possible to send out other deliveries.
Using compostable post bags and satchels, when sending out your Mongrel orders. We are also able to provide you with off-cuts of wool for yarning and darning of your Mongrel Socks, all you need to do is ask....
