News: Research and Innovation Hub to Support Irish Grown Wool Council

A newly established research and innovation centre, the Wool Hub, has been set up to offer technical knowledge and expertise to the newly formed, all-island Irish Grown Wool Council (IGWC). The hub aims to assist farmers, sole traders, enterprises, and anyone interested in maximising the potential of this natural Irish-grown resource by providing research, development, and innovation support.
