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 Lab
