LOCAL woolgrowers who provided wool to an Australian Wool Network (AWN) and Dyson Jones special project, The Williams Wool DNA Program, got to see and touch the first fashion garments made from their wool at The Williams Woolshed recently.
Four of the seven woolgrowers who are providing wool for the project were able to join The Williams Woolshed partners Kim and Simon Maylor and Sara and Ryan Duff, plus AWN and Dyson Jones representatives and others involved with the project, for the unveiling of the first finished products.

After more than 18 months to pull the project together, a range of fashion items knitted from Williams wool are on sale in time for Christmas at The Williams Woolshed and online, marketed under the MerinoSnug label and AWN/Dyson Jones’ traceable provenance Direct Network Advantage program.
