There is a great story to tell around the heritage and the focus on wool, benefits to both the environment and healthy living, and I am thrilled to be leading this sales effort not only in the UK but globally. 

There are some exciting upcoming opportunities and we have lots of activity planned to raise the profile of the brand in the marketplace with a number of exciting launches scheduled for the commercial and residential markets”.
