Our local/global connections

The Tasmanian Wool Centre goes to great lengths to provide garments with a connection to our local Tasmanian Merino Wool.  That’s why being the only Australian retailer of Ortovox garments is so meaningful to us, because Ortovox source their Merino wool from our local farms in the Tasmanian midlands.

Knowing that the best wool comes from the happiest sheep, the Ortovox team’s research led them to Tasmania where they found Merino sheep living in the most ideal conditions to grow the top quality wool they were seeking.

They found sheep living a relaxed life, free to roam the rich grassy pastures, in an environment with no extremes of heat and cold, with gentle, though minimal human interference. The local farms raising these happy sheep are: Ashby and Lewisham, both at Ross; Kennilworth, at Campbell Town; Rothamay and Montecute, near Bothwell; and Stonehenge, near Oatlands. Ortovox regularly engage with their supplier farmers, and are confident of the wellbeing of these sheep.

Investment in Merino sheep breeding in Tasmania over the years has produced world class quality wool with so many beneficial properties: softness, insulation, tear resistant, anti-static, anti-bacterial, doesn’t scratch, smell, or even crease very much.

Our range of Ortovox garments are perfect for any situation, whether you’re climbing mountains or strolling along a river bank, running, cycling, or at the park. You will be comfortable and dry, confident in your high quality, durable, and fabulous looking clothes.

Nothing beats the sensory feel of wool. It is an experience that cannot be satisfied in the on-line shopping world and so we encourage you to visit the Tasmanian Wool Centre for personal in-store service to help you find the outfit just meant for you.

If you are unable to visit us, while we do not have an online shopping cart, we welcome your order or enquiry via email, or call us on 03 6381 5466 (international: +61 3 6381 5466). Talk to us about the colours and sizes we have in-store. Our friendly team look forward to helping you.
