As a naturally sustainable product, wool brings vast environmental benefits. You can learn more about the benefits of wool here.
However, we will only ever be proud of our environmental commitments as long as the welfare of the animals we source the wool from is just as ethical. We're proud to partner with farmers who guarantee trusted ethical practices and animal welfare. We will never work with farmers or suppliers who break this commitment.

New Zealand Farm Assurance Programme Standard
In addition to our continued commitment to ensuring our wool is sourced from reputable sources, we are certified with the Wool Integrity New Zealand programme – underpinned by the New Zealand Farm Assurance Programme Standard.
This partnership ensures that all wool we receive through our long-term supplier of over thirty-five years - complies with the five freedoms of animal welfare:
Freedom from thirst, hunger and malnutrition.
Freedom from discomfort.
Freedom from pain, injury, or disease.
Freedom from distress.
Freedom to express normal behaviour.
The Wool Integrity programme was established in 2015 as an assurance to all parties within the wool supply chain that a quality, sustainable and ethically produced product will be delivered on time.
