Waverley Mills rescues 60 tonne of yarn from landfill

Waverley Mills established in 1874 is Australia’s oldest continuously working woollen mill. Waverley Mills has produced pure new wool and recycled textile products for over 145 years, turning raw fibre and waste into finished textile products. 

A recent drop in global demand for high fashion couture has seen an excess supply of quality yarns.  Aligned with the mill’s core principles of creating sustainable products, Waverley Mills has salvaged over 60 tonnes (60,000 kgs!) of mixed yarn that would have ended up in landfill and turned it into something magical.
