Wool Week is back and is commemorating its 5th year running, and here at Soak&Sleep we’re celebrating all things wool!  Run by patron HRH The Price of Wales, this global campaign was initiated to showcase the shear delights and benefits of this amazing natural material. Since its launch, this scheme has brought together a community of fashion designers, consumers, wool growers, retailers and interior designers, and ultimately has resulted in a new international demand for wool.
