From Taihape and Taranaki in the north down to Wellington.

Our large geographic area covers the lower left quarter of the North Island, from Taihape and Taranaki in the north down to Wellington and its surrounds

Our Upcoming Events

Our members range from those with small lifestyle blocks and very small flocks to professional farmers. Several members are woolcrafters with no sheep, but they have a thirst for knowledge about sheep and wool.

From time to time we organise seminars or workshops and we encourage our members to show their sheep and wool at A&P shows in the region. Members receive newsletters with updates on field days and other items of interest. If you’d like a copy of the current newsletter or more information about what’s happening in our area, see our contact details on this page.

A warm and woolly welcome awaits you in the Manawatu!

About the Association

This Association was founded in 1976. There are now twelve branches throughout New Zealand, and members range from small block owners to those with large commercial flocks. Some produce wool for use in their own handcrafts such as spinning, felting and weaving, or to sell to craftspeople. Others are involved in commercial production of natural coloured wool products, or breed for high quality sheepskins. Some do not own sheep, but have an interest in natural coloured wool.
