Promoting a sustainable future for Wool

The International Wool Textile Organisation (IWTO) is the global authority for standards in the wool textile industry. 

Since 1930, IWTO has represented the collected interests of the global wool trade. Its membership encompasses the wool pipeline, from farm to retail. Through scientific research, wool textile education, and knowledge sharing, IWTO ensures a sustainable future for wool.

Wool In School is proud to be a part of the international organisations who are members of the IWTO.


IWTO undertakes a range of activities to support its mission. These include scientific research, wool textile education, and knowledge sharing. The organization also provides a platform for its members to network and collaborate, helping to drive innovation and growth in the wool industry.

One example of IWTO’s activities is its annual congress, which brings together members from around the world to discuss the latest developments in the wool industry. The congress features presentations from industry experts, panel discussions, and networking opportunities. IWTO also organizes workshops and seminars on topics such as wool processing, sustainability, and marketing.

In addition to its events, IWTO also produces a range of publications and resources for its members. These include market reports, technical guidelines, and educational materials. The organization also works closely with other industry bodies and governments to advocate for the interests of the wool trade. Through its activities, IWTO plays a vital role in supporting the growth and sustainability of the global wool industry.
