Wool AppreciationPrint

These free, one-day workshops offer insight into the production pipeline of Merino wool apparel – from fibre to garment – and detail the unique benefits, performance and fabric attributes of wool.

Delivered by The Woolmark Company, the Wool Appreciation Course can be tailor-made for individual companies and uses a mixture of cross-media to provide simple and practical explanations of the various processing stages.

Topics one to three provide a clear understanding of the unique qualities of Merino wool fibre, product types and basic steps of manufacturing. Topics four to eight are intended for an intermediate to advanced audience and cover processing steps required to deliver high quality Merino wool products with the desired visual, tactile and performance attributes.
