A UNITED SUPPLY CHAIN, FROM FARM GATE TO SHOP FRONT.

THE WOOLKEEPERS INITIATIVE HAS BEEN BROUGHT TOGETHER TO ESTABLISH A BETTER WAY OF DOING BUSINESS SO THAT EVERYONE IN THE SUPPLY CHAIN BENEFITS AND FEELS CONNECTED.

THIS MODEL PROVIDES SOURCING INTEGRITY, PAYS A FAIR PRICE FOR WOOL, COMMUNICATES FARM PROVENANCE AND DEVELOPS POSITIVE ANIMAL WELFARE.

WE PROVIDE TRACEABLE WOOL THROUGH GROUPS

Our environment is best suited to grow wool on mountains, moors and paddocks. We have smaller flock sizes than merino farming. In fact, our geographical wool clip is estimated at 85% less then Australia. Because of this, we group farmers together by fibre quality, breed, animal welfare perspective, as well as farm & land assurance. The Woolkeeper supply ecology believes in maximum waste recovery. And so, during processing we combine groups together if there is left over wool fibres. These guidelines allow us to process commercial quantities and pay a higher premium to the farmer.

Each time we process wool we create a unique blend, identifiable by the above traits and farm location.
The wool is chosen only from our group of Woolkeepers.
To keep things simple, we give this a group number.
This number helps us tell you exactly who has helped grow your wool.
Within each group we feature a lead farmer or shepherd to reflect the diversity behind British wool.

We love the self cleaning properties and the warmth a wool garment brings on a long cold winter days work.
