KPC's sheep are raised in Gostwyck in New South Wales, Australia where they have been producing wool since 1834. KPC makes sure that the sheep, goats and their environment are properly cared for, spins and dyes all its fleece, and oversees where every ball of wool is wound and packaged. KPC is proud to be the only company in the world to use merino wool of this superior quality for hand knit yarns.
The impeccable attention to care and quality extends even to the packaging. The ribbon can keep your ball of wool intact between projects, and the label can double as a gift tag when your project is ready.
