British Wool - Producer information & wool values

The UK has more sheep breeds than any country in the world – over sixty different breeds cared for by more than forty thousand farmers on hills and lowlands. The diversity of breed and fleece type means British wool can be used in a broad range of applications including flooring, bedding, furnishings, insulation and apparel. British Wool sells producer’s wool into global markets through auction, to processors, manufacturers, retailers and ultimately consumers. Wool is an incredibly versatile fibre, and makes a significant contribution, in excess of £100 million, to the UK economy.
