The quality of Gostwyck merino fibre is the result of over 180 years of expert selection of merino sheep producing finer, softer and whiter wool. Today the producers of the Gostwyck wool produce merino which is finer than most cashmere, and has been scientifically tested as the most comfortable natural fibre.
With a three-day rotational grazing system in place, animal stress is eliminated and the use of harsh chemicals minimised. Pastures grow naturally to maximise high quality nutrition and sheep remain healthy and well nourished, and remain free from parasitic invasions.
Major changes to grazing practices have seen a steady increase in the sustainability of soil health, pasture and water quality. The environment and ecology greatly benefit from these state-of-the-art grazing systems.
Next-to-skin comfort and itch free
To ensure that all garments made from Gostwyck merino are itch free, every fleece is tested using a LaserScan system to determine the fibre diameter, prior to the traditional classing process at shearing.
Sustainable merino production
A balanced ecology and healthy environment have taken many years to accomplish. Careful and patient management has allowed the Gostwyck farm to implement sustainable grazing practices that benefit the environment, improve the eco-system and provide the best possible nutrition for the welfare and health for the Gostwyck sheep.
