At Cotswold Collections, we will always support the wool industry by continuing to offer a great range of wool garments and accessories. We believe this natural fibre provides superior warmth, durability and comfort. Inspired by the rolling hills and picturesque dwellings of the Cotswolds, we have been proudly designing our collections of unique, classic clothing for over 25 years. The Cotswolds was famous for being one of the largest outputs for wool during Medieval times.
To celebrate this year’s Wool Week, we have collected some of our pure wool garments from our winter collection to brighten up your wardrobe with these gorgeous garments in warm and rich seasonal hues.
What is the Campaign for Wool?
For the past 11 years The Campaign for Wool, under the patronage of HRH Prince Charles, has been raising the profile of wool, running events across the country, establishing Wool Week to spread awareness of this extraordinary fibre and why you should choose it over other fabrics.
Why is wool important?
We wanted to share the importance of wool from The Campaign for Wool's website so you can discover the incredible qualities of this natural fibre.
Wool is a protein fibre formed in the skin of sheep and is thus 100% natural, not man-made. Since the Stone Age, it has been appreciated as one of the most effective forms of all-weather protection known to man, and science is yet to produce a fibre which matches its unique properties. Every year sheep produce a new fleece, making wool a renewable fibre source. Woolgrowers actively work to improve efficiency and care for natural resources, endeavouring to make the wool industry sustainable for future generations. At the end of its useful life, wool can be returned to the soil, or the marine environment where it decomposes, releasing valuable nitrogen-based nutrients into the ground/ocean.
