British Wool

This project focusses on the design and manufacture of new personalised, reusable face coverings as fashion accessories, with specified filtration characteristics combined with excellent thermo-physical comfort and aesthetics.

The R&D is harnessing British-grown wool as a sustainable resource, fibre functionalisation technology and short, UK manufacturing supply chains, to deliver long-lasting high quality, face-covering products that also reduce the environmental impacts of end-of-life disposal.

We are delighted to be working with the Universities of Leeds and Huddersfield on this innovative project looking for brand new uses of British wool.
