Wool in Transition (RWS)
Burel Factory is currently working towards achieving the Responsible Wool Standard (RWS). One of the steps for this is the tracking and documentation of the shepherds and herds that Burel work with within the region. Burel have started the shearing of the flocks.
RWS is a certification promoted by Textile Exchange that aims to improve the welfare of sheep and the land they graze on. It requires all sites, from wool farmers to the seller in the final business-to-business transaction, to be certified. RWS farmers and ranchers must meet animal welfare, land management, and social requirements. For more information about RWS, click here.
