Why Wool Matters
International Campaign for Wool recognises environmental impact of what we wear in its new film; Why Wool Matters.
In line with our sustainability programme, Celtic & Co. has been working alongside Campaign for Wool and we are thrilled to introduce you to it's eye-opening new film, Why Wool Matters.
The short documentary highlights the key role that sheep play in our environment. As one of nature's best performing and ecological fibres, wool has been confirmed as a carbon neutral, natural fibre with biodegradable and renewable properties.
HRH The Prince of Wales features in the short film as patron for the campaign. Instigated in 2008 by HRH and launched in 2010, Campaign for Wool was set up as a non-profit organisation promoting the natural benefits and biodegradability of wool. The campaign has since staged more than 250 events in 17 countries worldwide, and is supported by more than 1,000 brands and customers. Prince Charles discusses the importance of educating the next generation of makers and consumers of the global benefits of using natural and sustainable resources. He highlights the changes that need to be made in the production, use and disposal of clothing and textiles if we are going to meet climate change goals set by the United Nations.
"I would recommend anyone to sit down and watch this video, as it is a great opportunity to learn more about what's happening in our industry, and the little things they can do which can have a positive impact on our environment."

Celtic & Co. Co-founder
Here at Celtic & Co., we are passionate about all things sustainable and increasingly seek out ways in which we can encourage environmentally beneficial practices in both our products and our community. The benefits of sourcing wool over synthetic fibres such as acrylic, nylon and polyester are vastly significant in a time where our planet needs us the most.
