Found the museum quite interesting, especially the displays of different quality wools & the amazing range of trophies on display. Shop carries high quality woollen products but as a Qlder not sure of value for money, definitely nice quality. Would like to see the lovely skeins of wool available with patterns for small projects. Would definitely have been more likely... More

This is a boutique shop front with a museum at the back to act as magnet. A great idea that did not quite work for me. The displays were presented reasonably well but were not enticing enough to become engaged in a wholly interesting story of history and prosperity. Ross has huge charm and the wool centre could have set... More

They have an excellent display of different wools and products, some for sale. There are two films on wool processing, including sheering. The museum covers the history of wool in the area plus local Tasmanian history. I had to drag Pat out of there to continue onto Hobart.

We were surprised to see the quality of the Wool Centre environment ,merchandise and displays. Not only does the centre display and sell woolen products but also has got some fascinating displays showing the wool industry, the history of Tasmania and the Ross area in particular. If in Ross or just passing through the area, the Wool Centre is a... More

Someone has gone to a bit of trouble with the display which was worth a look. However, I found the attitude of the women who work in the shop appauling, sadly they let the whole thing down and the township of Ross in general. They were unhelpful, abrupt and more interested in their own agenda. Should you make a purchase... More

It didn't really interest me and the prices for items were better suited for big cities. However the people knew what they were talking about so that was a bonus.

Most product are made in China. Bought one item made in Australia. The lady shop keeper may be friendlier. Tasmania seems to behind in Hospitality Industry.
