Following on from the successful trade re-launch of Cool Wool at Première Vision in February the Woolmark Company will demonstrate to designers, brands and retailers at the show Merino wool's natural suitability to the S/S season.

Textile Forum is London's most exclusive fashion fabric show, aimed at designers, small to medium sized manufacturers, dressmakers and retail fabric specialists looking for high quality fabrics from UK and Continental mills. The Woolmark Company will join the likes of Holland & Sherry and Laurent Garigue Partnership at the show which is run over two days on the 7th and 8th of March.

London is a premiere global fashion centre nurturing a wealth of creative design talent. Rebecca Sharp UK Country Manager for The Woolmark Company commented that Textile Forum is a great opportunity to demonstrate to UK designers, emerging talent and visiting fashion and textile students that Merino wool is an extremely versatile modern and relevant fibre. It's crucial that we can show the British fashion industry some of the exciting developments and great innovations in wool fabric manufacture today.

The Woolmark Company places great emphasis on education and raising people's awareness of Merino wool's natural and unique attributes.
