At Johnstons of Elgin, we are proud to work with many different natural fibres including vicuna, cashmere and wool. Our very first products included woollen “scouring” blankets made using the fleeces of local sheep and sold to our local hospital in Elgin. Today the wools we use are amongst the finest in the world and make the most incredibly soft, comfortable and desirable products.
We share a long history with the softest, highest quality Australian merino wool. The first merino sheep were introduced to Australia in 1797, the same year Johnstons of Elgin was established. We continue to support the Australian merino-growing industry, helping to maintain the economy in an area where the land is best suited to this use.
