About the programme

When purchasing a Wool Integrity™ NZ branded parcel of scoured wool, it comes with our guarantee that the wool selected for this parcel has followed this integrity journey:

  • Full traceability back to the individual farms where the wool was grown.
  • Farms where the wool has been selected from have followed the Wool Integrity™ NZ Programme guidelines in respect to Best Farming Practices, ensuring correct procedures have been followed at the time of shearing.
  • These farms also meet strict rules around Animal Welfare, and we guarantee the sheep to be non-mulesed.
    Each farm lot is tested by either NZWTA or SGS before it is considered for inclusion into the batch.
  • Mechanically drawn sample of each farm lot is inspected for quality by our own experts to determine its suitability.
  • We guarantee that each farm lot used meets the specification of the scoured type being delivered, so no inferior wools are blended in.
  • In order to protect the environment wool is scoured using only environmental friendly detergents and no bleach or other chemical enhancements are applied to artificially improve colour readings.
  • Any finished product made from Wool Integrity branded wool will be eligible to carry our Wool Integrity™ NZ logo free of charge.

PGG Wrightson Wool cares about the integrity of the wool it sells, both in New Zealand and around the world. We work with wool growers around the country to ensure that wool sold through us has followed an integrity journey. In addition we support the Campaign for Wool, and encourage our wool producers to do so.

We request that wool producers complete the following declaration to allow us to document the integrity practices of each grower. Only wool from farmers who adhere to the PGG Wrightson Wool Integrity Programme NZ™ qualify for the Wool Integrity NZ™ brand.
