Manifesto point 8 - We recognise craft as a leader in ethical, environmental and sustainable business practice.
“Locally produced wool is an inherently sustainable fashion choice. We also strive to ensure that our manufacturing processes embody the principles of sustainable development, helping to protect our environment and supporting our local communities.”
Uist Wool runs a spinning Mill & Wool Centre on the island of Grimsay in North Uist, part of the Outer Hebrides. Uist Wool is based on the principles of People, Planet & Profit, seeking to benefit the many, establishing sustainable practices and creating a viable enterprise to support the communities of the Outer Hebrides. Provenance is the foundation to our story, with wool sourced locally, selected with care and processed at the Mill with a high degree of quality control at every stage of production. Interpretation of cultural traditions in wool-work and sharing knowledge between generations is at the core of our community outreach.
