John Smedley celebrates 235 years at British Wool Week

Wool Week runs 7th of October 2019 – 20th of October 2019

Wool Week 2019 is a very good opportunity to promote an environmental message about wool being a sustainable natural product with many ecological benefits.

John Smedley are promoting their use of only British wool in the manufacture of their garments. The British designer label is also introducing a new video talking about Alpaca and Guanaco fibres and features a farm in Devon who supply them.

For John Smedley being able to trace the fibres back to the individual animal and herd is at the root of ensuring traceability. This coupled with a desire for maximum sustainability underpins their approach to manufacture and responsible retail.
