British Wool Trade


To meet the increasing demand for traceability, new to this season, British Wool has rolled out 100% traceable wool to 4 of 8 grading depots: Bradford, Galashiels, Newtown and South Molton.

The wool has been taken up by brands such as Harrison Spinks, Devon Duvets, Luna Textiles and Woolroom.

The traceable wool attracts a significant premium over and above the auction price, this additional value is being returned to British Wool’s farmer members. Moving forward we anticipate continued growth as we bring more brands on board with the scheme.

British Wool offers different levels of traceability to suit client demands.

All British Wool licensees have been through a through third party verified supply chain audit process to ensure that the wool they are using in their products is sourced through the British Wool scheme and also that the correct levels of British wool are being used.

This also helps to ensure the wool being used is to the brand exact requirements. This scheme underpins all of our traceability.
