Wool trial
Consignments of WA wool have been sent to UK-based retailer Marks and Spencer as part of a supply chain management trial.

It is hoped the trial, involving five and a half tonnes of wool ranging from 19.5 microns to 23 microns, will lead to better returns for growers.

If it is successful, lead commercial orders could be coming through in February.

Whiteheads of Bradford will produce knitting yarn that will then be transferred to knitter Coates in Viyella to produce pure wool fabric.

The final product will be retailed by Marks and Spencers as knitwear and socks.
