British Wool operates a central marketing system for UK fleece wool using a fully computerised auction system, with the aim of achieving the best possible net return for producers (farmers).
We are the only organisation in the world that collects, grades, sells and promotes fleece wool. We are also the only remaining agricultural commodity board in the UK.
We receive no financial support. We operate commercially, but we are also a non-profit making organisation, returning to producers the market price for their wool.
Day to day operations are run from our headquarters in Bradford. We also have smaller regional offices in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
