Here at Myssyfarm we want to end the discrimination based on the wool colour of black and brown sheep. In the world of sheep, the wool of black sheep is only 70 cents, where as white sheep is a whole Euro.
There is a real need for this campaign. Myssyfarmi buys Organic Finsheep wool via Pirtin Spinning Mill for a price of 5e/kg + VAT (Quality I wool) and 2,5e/kg + VAT (Quality II wool). However, there is an acute shortage of wool from black sheep. "We will pay the same price for the wool of black, brown and white sheep, but there are challenges to the availability of black wool," commented Anna Rauhansuu, Myssyfarm's mistress.
If you are able to offer wool, without looking at the color, call Myssyfarm Anna 0445704022 as well as the Pirtin Kehräämö 050 441 5045. The total need for next year is about 4000kg of raw wool, of which 1500kg of black.
