British wool - discover the benefits
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 from flooring to apparel. Sheep farming also has benefits for our landscapes, helping to keep rural shrub and grassland under control. So the next time you are purchasing a carpet, mattress or jacket insist on British wool and help support British farmers.
Our job at British Wool is to collect, grade and sell the wool on behalf of sheep farmers. To find out more, watch the British Wool story.
