About Kirchelly Textiles

Kirchelly Textiles is a family-owned business based on Central Coast, New South Wales, Australia.

 

Kirchelly Textiles is committed to ethical and sustainable practices for producing our woollen products. We like to call our little process “Sheep to Skein”.

We have 2,000 head of SRS-Merino under management by Mt. Bodangora Merino Farm in Wellington, NSW that we have negotiated direct contracts with. Mt. Bodangora specialises in SRS-Merino (Soft Rolled Skin), which has been specifically developed to not require mulesing to prevent fly blow. This has the benefit of being cruelty free to the animals, something my wife and I as animal lovers are passionate about.

 

Our fleeces are processed in NZ at Design Spun Mills due to no mills in Australia being able to work with the volume and type of Merino we are processing. The waste from our scouring and combing is turned into fertilising pellets used for sustainable farming.

We do not Super Wash our wool, although the milling process and the use of the long hair SRS Merino makes it feel just like it is.

 

We then process the raw yarn at out dye studio at Wyong in NSW where we wholesale the base to other dyers, as well as dye for wholesale, and dye for retail using our own colour range (check out www.greatsouthernyarn.com for more information and pictures).

Our dye studio runs off our large solar array and battery system, and we use collected rainwater for or process to reduce our impact on the environment. We love what we produce and love that others are catching on that you can produce ethically sources, cruelty free wool products and not go to China, Turkey, or India.

 

If you’d like a sample to squish, touch and smell (yes it still smells of sheep) we’d love to send you something. Please let us know a delivery address and we will pop a little something in the mail for you.

Kirchelly Textiles was started in 2023 by Jarrad & Aleashia Kircher who endeavour to produce a top quality, ethically produced yarn products to support the yarn industry.
