Regenerative Agriculture

Regenerative agriculture is a holistic farming approach.
It focuses on developing the biology and fertility of soils as the basis of the entire system. 

This boosts yields and productivity. It also improves the health of the land reducing dependence on synthetic chemicals.

As a Merino grower and farmer, Vanessa Bell practices regenerative farming. She and her husband Philip do this by rotational grazing. This ensures cutting of the grass, improving soil quality. This type of grazing increases carbon sequestration in the soil.

The Bell family care for their sheep via five welfare domains. These include nutrition, environment, health, behaviour, mental state. They look for improvements to ensure best practice in the management of their flock.

It’s Vanessa’s long-term goal to utilise her own home-grown wool in her collections.

The Bell family also work with Greening Australia. The aim is to protect, restore and conserve Australia’s native vegetation.  Replanting projects and locked off corridors are instrumental in this care. The native corridors also act as natural heating and protection from the paddocks for the flock in winter.

Regenerative agriculture supports soil systems, increases biodiversity, improves water erosion and pollution.
It also supports bio-sequestration while improving water retention, compost, microbial health and pastures.

Our blankets are keepsakes, hand knitted in 100% Australian Merino wool.

If you show your blanket a little care, it will love your family for generations to come. Merino wool has a naturally protective outer layer, which resists wet and dry soiling minimising odours. This means it doesn’t require frequent washing.

It’s static free and attracts less dust and lint. What’s more, Merino wool contains lanolin which is naturally antibacterial preventing colds and flu.

Caring for your blanket is easy, but there are a few things you should know. 


  • Warm machine wash on a short gentle cycle (use a wash bag).
  • Use an approved wool detergent.
  • Warm rinse well; gently squeeze out excess water and dry flat in shade.
  • Wool has a memory so stretch gently back into shape and use a warm iron if needed.
  • Dry clean your blanket. 


  • Don’t use hot water cycles as it will shrink your blanket.
  • Don’t use normal washing powder as it strips the lanolin from the fibre and will ruin the finish of your blanket.
  • Don’t tumble dry as you will shrink your blanket.
  • Don’t dry in the sun as it will scorch and discolour the wool.
  • Don’t hang your blanket on the line it will stretch.
  • Don’t bleach.


We use high quality Merino yarn to reduce pilling however you might find with age, some pilling is inevitable.  To prevent this, wash the blanket when you notice loose fibres.  If you notice pilling use a sweater comb to remove.  


To deter moths, store your blanket with Red Cedar and Huon Pine as a safe alternative to the highly toxic naphthalene moth balls.  Seal your blanket in summer months for storage.
