Show your support for the British wool industry

Received an email this morning from the Natural Fibre Company drawing my attention to a newly launched  campaign to 'get wool to the olympics'.  The NFU want to make sure that where possible any woolen products commissioned / bought for events surrounding the 2012 Olympics are made from British wool, from carpets to corporate gifts.  You can show your support by signing their online petition

There is much afoot at the moment promoting a return to supporting British wool, which has been no doubt been invigorated by the Campaign for Wool supported by Prince Charles.  The campaign was recently launched by HRH at the National Wool Museum here in Wales.  To find out more, follow these links: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/10432169 and http://www.woolipedia.com/the-campaign-for-wool.html
