WELCOME TO TOLAND POLL MERINO 



Flock Code: 601082

For the last two years Robyn Betts (a local here in Violet Town) has come out and helped class the hoggets prior to shearing in October to fill a bale full of soft, long, lustrous, white 18 micron wool. She gets it delivered down to Bacchus Marsh where it is combed and carded. The lady that was in charge of processing it was so in awe of how the wool washed and carded that Robyn couldn't wait to ring me! It really is quite thrilling to hear this as you work so hard with the sheep all year that you want to hear this feedback all the time! After it is processed Robyn couriers it to Wangaratta where it is spun. It will then be sent down to Geelong where they will knit the garments! As it is incredibly white it will allow the fibre to be dyed so I reckon I will be looking for a baby blue jumper. 
Robyn has just opened her store here in Violet Town so if you are ever passing through please stop in to the Alpaca and Yarn Lady and say g'day!
