We are thrilled to announce that following a successful audit Brierley Brothers Limited t/a Gardiner Yarns are now certified to the “Responsible Wool Standard” (RWS), licence number CU CUC 1326440.
We have always responsibly sourced our wools from producers that follow internationally accepted husbandry guidelines conforming to the Five Freedoms of Animal Welfare and in addition all the wool that we process originates from a supply chain that does not practice mulesing. However, we have now taken this a step further with our new RWS wool certification which independently describes and certifies animal welfare standards and land management practices in wool fibre production, tracking the certified material right from the farm to the final product.
We are extremely proud to have achieved certification against this standard and we are committed to ensuring that our products continued to be produced in an ethical and environmentally friendly manner. This certification is in recognition of those efforts.
