Campaign for Wool's 5th Anniversary
To commemorate the 5th anniversary of the Campaign for Wool, the campaign's Patron His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales hosted a major celebration of wool at Clarence House.

Attended by a host of key guests representing brands and fashion designers from the Wool Collection, the occasion was marked with enlightening talks by very special guests including Nicholas Coleridge CBE, Chairman of the Campaign for Wool.

Seeking to highlight two of the Campaign's most frequently made claims regarding wool's benefits: firstly, that it is a supremely safe fibre thanks to its natural fire retardant properties and that secondly, wool quickly biodegrades in soil -- a key ecological benefit, the day centred around two tests and an immersive wool fashion and interiors presentation.
