Mount Bodangora is part of the ‘SustainaWOOL’ integrity scheme, an accreditation program run by Italian woollen mills to ensure a high standard of care for the sheep and their environment. Mount Bodangora run a mob of sheep especially for Great Southern Yarn to supply us a longer length fleece of around 100mm or four inches to create the best of yarns.
