My friend Kylie Gusset has launched an intriguing new project: TON OF WOOL. Kylie is passionate about minimising the carbon footprint of the wool we knit with, and also about preserving and maintaining the Australian wool industry (most of which has moved overseas). For this project, Kylie has sourced a rare breed of Australian sheep (Cormo) that produce a beautiful fleece. She’s also secured a “scour” that has agreed to process a ton of the fleece. (That’s the minimum amount they’ll handle.) She needs about $35K pledged in order to get this project off the ground. If you like the idea of preserving Australia’s wool heritage, you should consider contributing. I did!
