The MANIOTOTO WOOL STORY

 A LOVE OF KNITTING AND SPINNING AND A PASSION FOR HIGH-QUALITY NEW ZEALAND WOOL LED TO THE ESTABLISHMENT OF MANIOTOTO WOOL LTD IN 2013.

The quality begins with selecting the best mid-micron fleeces available. Once a year at shearing time in August we head for Duncan’s sheep station in the Maniototo region of Central Otago to select fleeces for our beautiful yarns. An experienced wool classer is on hand for the selection.

As each sheep is shorn we look for wool that:

  • Has good length (a long staple) and an even crimp from cut to tip
  • Is fine and soft (the finer end of the wool available)
  • Is robust, with no breaks along the length of the staple
  • Is clean and well skirted
The wool is sent to Canterbury wool scourers in Timaru to be scoured, then to Wild Earth Yarns in Christchurch to be made into our own range of yarns.
 

When you buy Maniototo wool yarns you are assured of the very best locally made product we are able to provide
