The Campaign for Wool is a global endeavour initiated by its patron, His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales, in 2010 in order to raise awareness among consumers about the natural benefits of the fiber, and also provide support for farmers and the textile industry. “Wool is an extremely natural, renewable and biodegradable fiber — absolutely sustainable,” His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales said,”Choosing real wool is also a love for our planet.” Since its launch in 2010, The Campaign for Wool has influenced a new demand for wool on an international scale, and its efforts have seen an outstanding threefold increase in the price farmers receive for their wool. This global event is supported by major trade textile organizations, designers and retailers, including Paul Smith, Vivienne Westwood and Topshop.

The birth of athletic wool subverts the stereotype of knitting and satisfies the more casual lifestyle of modern people. Sportswool maintains the natural properties of wool, including softness, air-permeability and odor resistance. Novel spinning technology endows textiles with better elasticity and resilience, and allows wearers to be free and comfortable during sport. Covering yarn and embedded composite spinning are the two major spinning methods currently.
