Why wool
It’s a very good product. I love the look and feel of wool before and after processing.

Our family’s story
Wheatons have been developing and working this land for a hundred years. I’m the third generation to “steer the ship” and hope the next generation will continue the legacy.

The Wheaton farm
Our farm is directly across the water from Kingscote at Redbanks. Land is very tightly held in our area, with only a few neighbours, so we enjoy lots of peace and quiet and privacy. We have around 10,000 sheep on property at any given time, predominantly merinos with a few cross-bred sheep and some cropping for supplementary feed to complement our wool focus.

My Kangaroo Island
I find it very hard to name just one place. I particularly like our area, including the coast and beach. Nearly all of the north coast beaches are favourites too.

My favourite Kangaroo Island Wool garment:
My zip-front hooded jumper – it’s very warm and hard-wearing, always presents well and is a comfortable fit.
