Waverley Mills is committed to the environment and to the communities in which we operate. We ensure responsible corporate behaviour at every stage of production: from where we source our wool and energy consumption to design, our finished products, and distribution.
We achieve sustainable and ethical manufacturing processes through our dedication to the following.
The Environment: For over 140 years, Waverley Mills has used natural fibres which are biodegradable, recyclable, and a natural resource. We minimise waste and produce a range of luxurious, quality recycled wool blankets and throws made from our own unused yarn and second-hand blankets.
For 50 years, Waverley Mills was powered by hydro-electricity from nearby Distillery Creek. We are working to reinstate hydro power and to add solar power to the mill’s operations.
