British Wool Trade

British Wool - our six pillars

There are six key principles to British Wool that not only make it unique, they offer buyers peace of mind that the product they are purchasing is truly the right choice.

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.
