These locally made hand knitted beanies come from the highest quality sheep wool from the Monaro NSW and real fur pompom.
Bellevue Park aims to produce the highest quality, well-nourished wool in the most sustainable and ethical manner possible.
Breeding beautiful Saxon Merino sheep, a breed with over 300 years in history, Bellevue Park produces superfine and ultra fine fleece, with a micron of 16.8 and lower. Saxons are a robust sheep with a natural resistance to pests and diseases, and a high level of lanolin in the wool, which helps to repel dust and dirt. This means that the farm is able to produce more kilograms of better quality fleece per head of sheep, which reduces the number of stock per acre, and therefore the lasting impact on the land.
Bellevue Park’s wool is grown for its warmth, lustrous yet gentle feel, minimal irritation and maximum comfort. A pure wool product, the elasticity of the fibre gives the final article more give, more drape and the lasting ability to retain its shape.
Bellevue Park has a ten year plan to become a completely clean and green farm, where wool is grown, processed and sold only from the farm, the energy is renewable, and the jobs are kept in the community.
