We are delighted to launch a new journal series focusing on inspirational women in our community. Recently we caught up with the stunning Isabelle Weston of The Britten Stables. In 2015 Isabelle and her husband Tim embarked on painstakingly restoring The Britten Stables after it sustained substantial damage in the 2011 Christchurch earthquakes. The stunning Britten Stables has a rich history and was built by her late father John Britten, the renowned inventor, designer and builder of the Britten V1000 motorcycle.
‘Ever since I can remember, I’ve been drawn to the magic of merino. Its strong, super-soft fibres. Its honest, sustainable nature. Its knack for holding its shape. Merino wool was (and still is) my first true love and it’s all thanks to my upbringing.’
‘Growing up on Bendigo Station, at an altitude far higher than most, gave me a different perspective.'
Early on, I learnt from my father that passion can transform a barren Bendigo into a thriving land of Merino. And I watched in awe as my mother worked hard to raise a family, feed the shearers and musterers, and bring merino products to the world.
When it came to forging my own path, I wanted to create something that not only expressed my deep love for merino, but also encapsulated the sheer beauty, slower pace and boundless spirit of high-country living. So in 2013, I brought PERRIAM into being.
