Information for consumers about British Wool Products

Why choose products made from British wool?

Soft, yet strong and durable, British wool is fire resistant, hard-wearing, easy to care for, sustainable, hypoallergenic and also helps to regulate your body temperature. This wide range of natural benefits means its the ideal fibre to use in a broad range of products, including carpet, bedding, apparel, furniture and craft

The UK has more sheep breeds than any other country in the world – over 60 different breeds cared for by more than 40,000 sheep farmers. Wool is grown naturally on sheep that roam freely in the countryside. Farmers help to preserve the UK’s landscapes, as sheep grazing helps wildlife to thrive. Sheep re-grow their fleece every year, making wool one of the most sustainable fibres available. As long as there is grass for sheep to eat, wool can be produced, in contrast to synthetic fibres, which require oil and refineries, a non-renewable resource for man-made fibre production.
