British Wool Trade

Collecting, grading, promoting and selling great British fleece wool since 1950.

Since 1950, British Wool has managed the collection, hand grading, core testing and sale of fleece wool from sheep breeds across the UK.

British Wool works on behalf of farmers to maximise the returns received for their wool, adding value through grading, and minimising the risk of price volatility by selling wool on behalf of farmers at auctions throughout the year.

Day to day operations are run from the Board's headquarters in Bradford, with regional offices in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland and country offices in Japan and China.
