Testimonials

"I took the tour through the new Kangaroo Island Wool factory and showroom today. What a great experience! From the immersive 360 degree cinema experience, then through the factory seeing and understanding all of the steps required to turn raw wool in to yarn, then on to the state of the art whole garment knitting machine, the tour gave me a fascinating insight in to why wool and woolen garments are truly amazing products. To see every step in the process being managed in the one location was very unique."

"We loved our recent tour of the Kangaroo Island mill, escorted by Sophie and Lucy. Fascinating to understand the process of turning wool from the sheep’s back into a finished luxury garment. We came away with four scarves and two jumpers!"

"My family was fortunate to be on the 11 am tour of the mill with Sophie. Sophie was extremely knowledgeable and was very generous with her time and care with us. We all enjoyed the tour of the mill immensely, it’s great to see wool grown on KI turned into a garment. We purchased three jumpers that I know we’ll proudly wear for many many years. Thanks Sophie & Lucy for such a great experience, we would all highly recommend visitors and locals make the time to visit."

"We absolutely loved this tour. Sophie, Emma and Sabine did a stellar job in educating us about the production and manufacturing of wool from the time it's shorn off the sheep to creating a beautiful and sustainable garment. The 360⁰ video experience was very informative and fun. It was great to hear about how the sheep farmers on KI are passionate about sustainable farming and lessening the negative impact on the environment. A very worthwhile visit."

"Took my mother there today and she had the most amazing time. We did the tour, which is a must. Great for people with disabilities, all one level and wide door access. The whole process was showed from the raw product to the end product. The ladies there so helpful and lovely in the shop you just couldn’t go home with out purchasing something or more!!! Fabulous day."

"The KI Wool Mill is a definite must see when visiting Kangaroo Island. Our tour through the Mill started with a 360-degree video in the special dome room – a very unique experience with so much to see at once – a great insight into the history and farming on the island! So good to see the passion of the farmers who supply the wool. This was followed by a fascinating journey tracking the processes that wool goes through from sheep’s back right through to being turned into a garment."
