What is the Campaign for Wool all about and why is it important?

The Campaign for Wool is a global community of sheep farmers, retailers, designers, manufacturers and consumers united by our patron His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales. It aims to educate as many people as possible about the incredible benefits and versatility of wool in fashion, furnishings and everyday life. This in turn, supports many small businesses and local farmers whose livelihoods depend on the wool industry.

What is so special about wool?

Wool is a natural fibre. It has evolved to produce a fabric that has become one of the most effective natural forms of all-weather protection known to man.

Every year sheep produce a new fleece, making wool a renewable fibre source. Woolgrowers actively work to improve efficiency and care for natural resources, endeavouring to make the wool industry sustainable for future generations.

What can we do to be involved in Wool Week?

Most importantly you can choose wool!

You can support Campaign for Wool partners by purchasing their wool products.

Join The Campaign for Wool on Facebook; Twitter, Youtube and Instagram and help spread the word – why not email us photos of your own woolly wonders?

If you are at school or college you could hold an arts and crafts day, or visit a local farm to learn more about sheep farming.

Check out our LoveWool map to find out what Wool Week activities are taking place in your area,  or add your own woolly event.
