    Campaign for Wool - Why Wool Matters

    What is the Campaign for Wool?

    Launched in January 2010, the Campaign for Wool brings together leading figures from the fashion industry, interior design, wool carpet manufacturers as well as the world of insulation and building.

    Since its launch in 2010, The Campaign for Wool has influenced a new demand for wool on an international scale. Its efforts have seen an outstanding threefold increase in the price farmers receive for their wool.

    Wool Week

    Each year the Campaign for wool organises a Wool Week in various parts of the world including the UK. In the UK, Wool Week is held in the month of October 

    Why Wool?

    Campaign for Wool - Why Wool?

    NATURAL
    Wool is a protein fibre formed in the skin of sheep, and is thus one hundred percent natural, not man-made.

    RENEWABLE
    As long as there is grass to graze on, every year sheep will produce a new fleece; making wool a renewable fibre source.

    BIODEGRADABLE
    At the end of its useful life, wool can be returned to the soil, where it decomposes. 

    NATURAL INSULATOR
    Wool is a hygroscopic fibre. As the humidity of the surrounding air rises and falls, the fibre absorbs and releases water vapour. 

    BREATHABLE
    Wool fibres are crimped, and when tightly packed together, form millions of tiny pockets of air. This unique structure allows it to absorb and release moisture without compromising its thermal efficiency.

    RESILIENT & ELASTIC
    Wool fibres resist tearing and are able to be bent back on themselves over 20,000 times without breaking.  

    MULTI-CLIMATIC/ TRANS-SEASONAL
    Thanks to its hygroscopic abilities, wool constantly reacts to changes in body temperature, maintaining its wearer’s thermophysical comfort in both cold and warm weather.

    EASY CARE
    The protective waxy coating on wool fibres makes wool products resistant to staining and they also pick up less dust as wool is naturally anti-static. Recent innovations mean wool items are no longer hand-wash only. Many wool products can now be machine-washed and tumble dried

    ODOUR RESISTANT
    Wool is far more efficient than other textiles at absorbing sweat and releasing it into the air, before bacteria has a chance to develop and produce unpleasant body odour.
