How to become Woolmark certified


Once your product is Woolmark certified, you become a Woolmark licensee and you will have access to unrivalled industry intelligence, expertise and information.

 

Support for your business

 

Sourcing and supplying wool

Connecting designers, brands and manufacturers directly to suppliers of yarn and fabric, we give Woolmark licensees the opportunity to connect with wool suppliers and buyers.

Technical transfer

We have a dedicated technical team of experts that have specialist knowledge in all areas of the supply chain and who are available to assist our licensees with technical transfer, troubleshooting, process and product development and supply chain optimisation.

Supply chain optimisation

We offer our Woolmark licensees design team support with supply chain assistance, quality assurance, seasonal consultation, product innovation and marketing to commercialise new wool product lines.

Retail training

We offer comprehensive training sessions tailored exclusively to Woolmark licensees to not only educate staff about the benefits and versatility of wool, but to ultimately allow them to maximise their sales of wool product.

Education

The Woolmark Learning Centre offers an unprecedented level of textile industry knowledge, freely accessible. From fundamental to masters level coursework, the platform offers expert-led knowledge, resources and programs across disciplines in the supply chain to achieve knowledge transfer.
