Love Wool: The Story of Minijumbuk
It’s just two words, but the simple slogan LOVE WOOL captures the pride and care taken in hand-crafting this natural ﬁbre into MiniJumbuk’s woollen quilts, pillows and underblankets – the best of their kind in the world. The story starts in the humblest way, with women from farms around Naracoorte in South Australia’s Limestone Coast making mini souvenir sheep for tourists to survive a severe rural downturn.
Four decades on, MiniJumbuk is one of the biggest users of wool in Australia thanks to the tenacity and vision of a local shearer, Don Wray, who understood wool’s incredible properties.
He knew, instinctively, what science would subsequently prove: that wool is the best ﬁbre for a restful sleep.
Like many pioneering Australian businesses, MiniJumbuk has been built on ingenuity, an innovative and loyal team, a have-a-go attitude and resilience when things went badly wrong. It may now be a world leader in woollen bedding products but at its heart, MiniJumbuk’s remains resolutely local, its artisans still working in the same country town using locally grown wool to ensure we have a good night’s sleep.one of England’s most beautiful Grade 1 listed manor houses.
