An introduction to the British Wool learning website
The story of British wool is fascinating and most people will be surprised at how little they know about it. Those who are familiar with it speak with passion on the topic and from a quick trip to our headquarters in Bradford you would see beaming faces filled with woolly knowledge. Through this new site we hope to share some of our knowledge with you.
Sheep activities for holiday time!
Summer holidays abroad are always fun. Sun, sea and sand give families the chance to relax and create some new memories. Whilst some kids undoubtedly love the excitement of watching the aeroplane take off and land, for others going to the airport and travelling can be less than entertaining and a challenge for parents. However, British Wool is here to help keep kids entertained!
