Topic - Welsh Wool and Sustainability in Wales

The Covid-19 pandemic has resulted in the wool sector of Wales taking a critical hit, like many other businesses, lockdown impacted severely in price drops, increased transport costs and reduced demand. As a result, farmers had very little return if any on their wool.

However, as we come out of the pandemic, business is starting to move in the right direction again. Over 1 million kilos of wool have been delivered into British Wool so far this year from producers who did not deliver wool in 2020. Although it is the middle of the wool year, the sector is starting to look promising!

This year Amgueddfa Cymru’s Digital Footprints Festival will be exploring the sustainability of wool and the impacts of Covid-19. Join our panelists to hear their insights into the value of Welsh wool, its multitude of sustainable possibilities, the changes their making, and how they support local farmers and their measures in creating a more sustainable Wales!

- Suzi Park (Cambrian Wool & 'Make it in Wales CIC')

The panel discussion is composed of a 45-minute discussion with a 15-minute Q&A at the end on Zoom (link will be sent through an email a couple of days before the event).   

The panel discussion will be in English, with Welsh interpretation available.
