Inspiration. Imagination. Motivation
Lammermoor Organic wool is grown on Lammermoor Station, Central Otago - New Zealand’s only certified organic fine/ medium sheep farm. In early 2020 we launched our new Lammermoor Organic range via retail stockists throughout New Zealand and Australia. The farm to yarn story is one that can be appreciated all over the globe. We are excited to add a quality New Zealand organic yarn to our product range, particularly with the connection to the majestic Maniototo scenery, land, animals and people that make Lammermoor Station. This story aims to give knitters an authentic feel for how and where their wool is grown.
Organic Yarn Definition:
To be certified Organic the property must have a conversion period of at least three years. Stringent audits are taken every six months during the conversion period when making the transition from conventional farming to Organic. During this time the land must not have any non-organic sprays and soil samples must be taken annually. Livestock and sheep cannot be drenched or dipped without special permission from the Organic Control body and any form of non-organic antibiotics or animal treatment will eliminate that animal from continuing its organic status. Stock must be treated humanly and farmed in accordance with good husbandry manner. All fertilisers must be Organically certified and strict documentation must be displayed at regular Audits. Overall traceability and organic compliance is very strict and must also comply with MPI regulations.
