The Group also owns Haworth Scouring and Combing companies and combine to make it a unique organisation which can grade, sort, scour and comb wool to the industry`s highest environmental standards.

Daniel Isbecque said, “Our reputation for delivering the right quality of wool and combed tops at the right time and at the right price is second to none in the industry. Our business has grown rapidly in the face of tough competition from synthetic fibres but we see a bright future for wool and we have put our money where our forecasts take us!”


Joint MD Tim Holgate believes the timing for this acquisition is perfect, “We will benefit even more from economies of scale and that will make us ultra competitive in the world markets.

We will do all we can to exceed their expectations.”
