Tasmania is renowned for the quality of its wool. Some of the finest wool in the world is produced on this island.

Tasmania, to this day heavily relies on the noble sheep, in all of its forms, and for all of its many uses, to help drive the wealth of the state. Tasmania’s nearly two and a half million sheep produce a fibre that is a luxury commodity that the international market craves. This natural fibre is used in everything from haute couture to carpet. Because of this wool has a bright future in a vibrant and diverse Tasmanian economy.

While the world around us changes, the quality fibre produced by generations of Tasmanian farmers and graziers faces many of the same issues as other commodities, red tape, regulation and social licence. The TFGA Wool Council works closely with all levels of government, through and with peak industry bodies. The TFGA Wool Council is made of, and directed by Tasmanian primary producers, these TFGA members are shaping the future of Tasmania’s wool industry.
