You may have noticed that last week across our social media sites and our homepage we were supporting wool week with a little sheep each day!

We love Wool at Cotswold Collections and enjoy all the benefits it brings to various garments. These include being biodegradable, breathable and a natural insulator.

So what is Wool Week and why is it so 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.

When did Wool Week launch?

The Campaign officially began in October 2010 with a launch event that saw London’s historic tailoring street Savile Row transformed into a pasture upon which fifty sheep grazed. Over 100 companies participated in Wool Week and thousands of consumers took part in activities such as knitting and felting. Yellow sheep were even spotted queuing outside Selfridges department store on Oxford Street. Click here to see more.

Cotswold Collections has and always will support the wool industry, by offering a great range of woollen garments and accessories in such a fabulous natural fibre.
We have lots of fabulous pieces across our categories that are made from 100% wool so why not take a look by starting at the Knitwear category.
