Our mission is to drive sustainable demand for British wool in order to maximise returns for our members.

New Entrants Scheme


British Wool’s new entrant’s scheme is designed to support sheep farmers who have recently entered the industry.

It allows eligible members to receive 100% of their clip value as an upfront payment for their first two years, along with a priority wool grading service through British Wool’s nationwide depot network.


Following this initial period, members will transition on to the standard payment scheme over the next three years by way of adjusted balancing payments.

In order to be eligible for the scheme a member must not have previously been registered with British Wool and have kept sheep for less than 5 years.
