Wool of exceptional quality to handle and colours of nature that are good for you and good for the land.

Care is taken to minimise the environmental and social impacts every step of the way. 100% traceable, supports local small businesses and leaves minimal waste and environmental damage. Botanical colours are all natural and are guaranteed that no harsh chemicals have been used so again, land and human health wins.

About : Nomad Farms is a multi-award winning farm on Ngarrindjeri Land (Finniss Valley) on the Fleurieu Peninsula, South Australia. Producing a range of pasture raised produce and botanically dyed fibre. Production methods uniquely regenerate landscapes and it is the principle of regeneration - ecologically, socially and economically - upon which Nomad Farms is based.
