Airies Station is tucked away in South Canterbury between Kimbell and Burkes Pass. It is part of the area famously called the Mackenzie High Country in New Zealand’s South Island. The station belongs to the Wool Integrity Programme and this is marked up in the wool catalogue – so wool buyers know they are bidding on a quality line of trustworthy mid-micron Perendale wool.

The family company Klippan Yllefabrik AB was founded in 1879. Since then, the company is owned by the Magnusson family. Today fourth and fifth generation of the family are working side by side in the company.
Wool Integrity is a great initiative which will help the company build credibility towards their customers and answer a lot of the questions raised by the users of their products.
