If a ton of wool seems like a lot, that's because it is. One ton is the minimum amount of raw wool fleece that Australian wool scourers will accept. Any less than that, you'll have to send it to China.

But I haven't told you the best part about Ton of Wool: Kylie sources her fibers from the very farm in Tasmania where the Cormo breed originated.
