UK Wool Week 2016


campaign for wool

The national campaign for wool is upon us this week with UK Wool Week! Created with the intention to raise awareness and increase knowledge on wool, the campaign for wool has been running for 7 years now and offers opportunities for retailers to join in and educate consumers on the beneficial uses of wool.

With a wide range of wool pieces heading up our new AW16 Collection, we were impressed to learn more about this cosy fabric that has so much more to offer than keeping you warm!

  • Renewable and recyclable
  • Sustainable
  • Fibres that are superior to and will outlast many other fabrics
  • Hardwearing and durable
  • Organic
  • Versatile

To further demonstrate the beneficial and usefulness of wool as a material for all parts of life (not just in fashion!), UK Wool Week is celebrating the opening of the UK’s first ‘Wool BnB’ – a fun house where every aspect of the interior from carpets to milk bottles is crafted from wool! Located in Islington, London, the house will be open to the public. It is definitely worth a visit and will even host workshops on knitting – see the schedule here
