Environmentally Sustainable Wool
We understand that the global demand for organic and low-chemical residue fabrics is increasing and that many wool buyers require their suppliers to comply with the requirements of the environmentally sustainable wool market. As part of our mission to be proactive in recognising environmentally sustainable practices, we offer supply arrangements for complying growers to not only deliver on the consumer expectation but make the most out of their sustainable wool clip.
ECO Wool is for wool that meets the EU ECO label for low-chemical residue standards. This supply chain can deliver you premium prices, as well as feedback on your wool’s final destination and end use. To meet these standards, wool must be prepared according to the AWEX Code of Practice.
Organic accredited wool growers can market their wool through Nutrien Wool. Our organic supply chain offers growers excellent prices, often above the market rate for comparable non-organic wool.
All wools that participate in our Direct-to-Mill and environmentally sustainable wool supply arrangements are AWTA tested giving you the security of knowing the performance of your clips match contract specification.
