Make a Difference - Choose Wool 

The Campaign for Wool’s annual Wool Week kicks off with an extended programme of events and interactive consumer moments from the 7th – 20th October.

Wool Week showcases innovative and contemporary wool products from this year’s brand partners across fashion and interiors, inspiring and educating consumers  about the benefits of wool. 

From exclusive exhibitions, screenings and styling events, to limited edition wool sweaters, bed and interior product launches, Wool Week 2019 celebrates the latest product releases and manufacturing experts in the world of wool. 

“The focus, and messaging, will be to invite consumers to ‘Make A Difference and to Choose Wool’ or to ‘Check it’s Wool’ by the choices they make. We can all make a small difference and accumulatively this can only help the plastic issue we are facing globally," said Peter Ackroyd, COO of the Campaign for Wool.

"Every year sheep produce a new fleece; making wool a natural, renewable fibre source. Wool has inherent natural biodegradable properties in the land and ocean to benefit the planet which is choking from waste plastic, man-made and micro-fibres. Shoppers can all make a difference by choosing wool to help safeguard the planet for future generations.”
