What Is British Wool?!

When you buy a piece of Oldfield Outfitters knitwear you're investing in more than just a sweater!  British manufacturing and British wool are part and parcel of what we pride ourselves in.

But we often get asked, what does British Wool mean?

The British Wool Marketing Board - now know as British Wool is a public body that was established in 1950 to promote the sale of British wool and provide services to sheep farmers in the UK.  It's responsible for collecting and grading of wool from farmers from across the UK and then sell on behalf of it's members (approximately 35,000 sheep farmers) to sell within UK's only wool auction on to the international wool textile industry.

You can have confidence that you are supporting an historic industry that we want to see continuing for years to come.
