Grading your wool
All British Wool Graders have completed a 5 year apprenticeship, meaning we are able to assure the highest standards of quality across our depot network.
Every fleece we receive is individually assessed, which determines the grade and quality. Grading every fleece adds value for our farmers as this separates the better quality wool from the poorer, with the better quality achieving a higher price.
Fleeces are graded into ‘types’ rather than specific breeds, ensuring that auction buyers are provided with fleeces possessing the unique characteristics required to suit individual product requirements.
