The Wool Lab


A seasonal guide to the best wool fabrics from across the world.


The Wool Lab brings together The Woolmark Company’s global supply chain network. Each season, we reach out to hundreds of spinners and weavers in Italy, France, the UK, China, Japan and more, to source their latest fabric developments. With this, we curate a seasonal sourcing guide with a selection of the best textile and yarn swatches, which can then be ordered directly from suppliers through The Wool Lab.

THE WOOL & THE WATER

THE WOOL & THE WATER


A story of a sustainable relationship where human needs meet nature, taking care of both environmental and human survival against the elements. An exploration of all the possible connections that wool has with water in these ongoing developments, including water and wind resistant fabrics.

WOOLBEING

WOOLBEING


A natural fibre, wool has a great story to tell, with its eco-credentials propelling the fibre into the health and wellbeing industries. Indeed, science is showing that wool bedding and sleepwear appear to promote a better night’s sleep, and medical studies reveal the wellbeing benefits of superfine Merino wool, particularly for eczema sufferers.

CRAFT

CRAFT


A focus on hand-made technologies in an era of digital disruption that draws inspiration from authenticity in nature, people and places. A return to craftmanship that is represented by freshness, innovative artisanal spirit and contemporaneity in the hands of the international new makers.

THE DARING SUIT

THE DARING SUIT


A vision that redefines traditional suiting simply by changing the canon of classical beauty in a harmonious mix of different cultural influences. The modern dandy does not have age, gender, ethnicity, nor does he follow the normal rules of dressing the formal dress.

URBAN HIKING

URBAN HIKING


A metaphor of active walk taken in an urban environment; a meander through the city’s obstacles of life. This vision is experimenting new fabric combinations, stealing details from sports equipment for an enhanced performance and multi-functionality of garments.

ARCADE

ARCADE


Harking back to the ‘gym of life’ from the ‘80s, Arcade is the antidote against the raging of individualism and social isolation of contemporary times. Materials are designed for a new generation who are more careful than their ancestors and who pay attention to both fashion trends and environmental health.

"Having access to a textile resource like The Wool Lab has really made bridging the gap between the designer and supplier much more streamlined."

Blair Archibald, designer and 2017/18 International Woolmark Prize regional winner for Australia and New Zealand.
