Woolmark unveils 'Wool is Easy to Care' campaign

As The Woolmark Company works towards cementing wool in its rightful place as one of the world’s most versatile, practical and best-loved natural fibres, a new campaign is being rolled-out for washable wool – with the underlying message that wool is easy to care for.

Research undertaken by the global authority on wool shows that consumers value ease of care, and strongly associate wool with being hard to care for. But the washable wool campaign aims to change these misconceptions and runs with the tagline Tested by Nature, Tested by Us.

And so The Woolmark Company is actively engaging with its brand partners to add washable wool to their garment ranges. As customers seek more wool specified to “machine wash” or “machine wash and tumble dry” standards, so too will the amount processors will be called upon to supply.

The three-year campaign will also help align consumer perceptions to the modern wool garments available, and as consumers are educated about wool’s easy care properties, appeal at point of sale is set to increase.

Woolmark-certified wool labelled as “machine wash” or “machine wash and tumble dry” is treated to prevent shrinkage, and has gone through rigorous testing to make sure it’s safe to machine wash and won’t felt, stain or fade. If people realise just how easy wool is to care for they will be putting more of your Woolmark-approved garments on their shopping list.

“This campaign is about stopping consumers associating wool with hand wash or dry clean and emphasises the washability aspects of wool,” explains The Woolmark Company Category Manager (Apparel Care Group) Cathryn Lee. “All products must be tested and comply with the strict Woolmark Specifications, which will give customers assurance of quality and peace of mind.

“The Woolmark Company is also available to provide technical support to any Woolmark brand partner keen to participate in the washable wool campaign.”
