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

Organic Wool

British Wool pays a premium for certain grades of organic wool. Our current organic wool premium, which is valid until 30 April 2021, is as follows:


  • All Fine wool grades
  • Medium grades (322-391 and all Romney wool grades)
  • Fine/Medium Hill wool grades (All Cheviot wooll grades and including 657, 659 and 669)
  • Mule wool grades (All Welsh, Southern and Northern Mule grades, excluding Mule Second Shear)
  • Blackface wool grades (723, 725, 732 and 735)

Please remember to pack your organic wool in a green wool bag or sheet, then it can be clearly distinguished. If you need extra organic wool sheets, please contact your local grading depot.

All organic wool must be accompanied by a valid approved UK Organic Control Body Certification. The certificate must be valid on the date of the receipt of wool into the British Wool network and must be registered to the farm in which the sheep were kept.

If you have any questions, please contact our Member Services team on 01274 688666 or email [email protected]
