A CHARITY bale of wool sold for 3000 cents a kilogram, or $5400, at the Melbourne wool stores on Tuesday.

Donated by Rodwells & Co and WISS Woolbrokers, the bale proceeds went to Epilepsy Foundation of Victoria.

The bale was sold on "Purple Day" – a fundraiser for the foundation.

Rodwells wool manager Michael de Kleuver said they were keen to support a cause that affected so many Australians.

The cause was also chosen in support of Paul Ferranato, a local processor who's son has epilepsy.

The 19.6-micron, 180-kilogram bale – measuring 94 millimetres and 35 newtons a kilotex – was purchased by Modiano Australia director Lou Morsch.

Well done everyone. Don't you all look great in your purple outfits for purple day? A wonderful achievement in the quest to raise awareness and support those families affected by epilepsy. Keep up the good work.

Great support from all involved in this day, it is so reassuring to have such good friends support me in raising awareness for my son Thomas and all others who suffer with Epilepsy like him. Thanks all....
