About Us

Traditional values but forward thinking. When it comes to the way we do business, you get the best of both worlds.

From our trading and scouring facilities in West Yorkshire, UK, right through to operations in Chile, China and New Zealand, everything about Standard Wool reflects a unique combination of heritage and experience complemented by modern-day business practices, professionalism and technology.

With origins dating right back to the 18th century, we're a group with a history to be proud of and a reputation that's stood the test of time. Many of the specialists that make up our teams have been in the wool trade for decades, and bring a wealth of experience, knowledge and dedication to their roles. But we don't stop there - as a global company at the very forefront of the industry, we've made it our business to combine traditional values and a dependable no-nonsense approach with all the technological innovation, operational flexibility and forward-thinking attitudes you'd expect.

At the heart of our success are our people and animals. They truly make our business what it is today. We believe that by supporting and safe-guarding both, not only do our customers benefit from our investments, but our children - and the generations still to come - will reap the rewards too.

By working hard to achieve our quality standard accreditations, such as the ISO 14001; subscribing and adhering to stringent guidelines of animal welfare, as set out by World Organisation of Animal Health (OIE)) and our trade body International Wool Textile Organisation (IWTO); Standard Wool continues to lead where others follow.
