The British Wool Marketing Board

The BWMB works alongside the textile industry to raise the profile of British wool and extend its desirability through promotional and technical assistance and a wide range of promotional material. Its shepherd's crook symbol is a mark of quality, licensed throughout the world, and it is only available to spinners and manufacturers who are producing products which meet the BWMB's exacting criteria. British Wool is a superior, natural fibre, thanks to a special combination of bulk, resilience, softness and warmth. British wool is used predominantly and recognised worldwide, as a quality carpet fibre.
