Impact
Great Southern Yarn merino wool comes from a single source: Mount Bodangora Merino, a six-generation Merino property run by the Lyons family in Australia. The Lyons run a mob of 290 sheep especially for Great Southern Yarn to supply them with a longer length fleece of around four inches to create the best of yarns. The wool at Mount Bodangora is grown under the ‘SustainaWOOL’ integrity scheme. This is an accreditation program run by Italian woolen mills to promote “sustainable production of superfine wool with emphasis on wool produced under natural pastoral/grazing conditions and with the highest regard to the Environment and the Animal.”
