Why online?


Wool in school has been set up since September 2019 and during that time we have

offered our workshop to over 600 children.


We felt it would be more accessible for schools, teachers and parents to provide this very unique programme to you and show children the benefits and characteristics of wool , its heritage in Ireland and its amazing uses from fiber to fabric around the world


We also have our online Directory where you can learn more about other business and farms focusing on different uses of wool.
