A bastion of the indie fibre community in Australia, Ms Kylie Gusset, has started a drive to mill a ton of Cormo wool right here in the country where it was first bred. Cormo is a stunningly cushy, soft wool and a worthy competitor for the attentions of handspinners against the ubiquitous merino.

If you’d like to support the cause and get some of this gorgeous wool all of your own, drop in and pledge your amount to the project. I’m not one to jump on every cause that there is, but this one touches my heart and my hands!
