'We started on the concept of a grower to garment proposal in 2011 when 19 members came together to form Kangaroo Island Wool. Eighteen of our members are wool growers and the 19th is our local vet who supervises all our sheep health and genetic breeding work,” Christine said.
AWN MD John Colley said they preferred the term wool marketing rather than wool broking to describe their business.
“We started in 1999 with a vision to bring wool growers and processors closer together. By controlling wool processing from bale to retail we are in charge of some of the associated costs, enabling us to potentially offer a better price for specific wool types, as well as be much more aware of consumer desires,” he said.
