The Campaign For Wool

HRH Prince Charles visited Bradford in November 2010 in support of the Campaign For Wool (to which William Halstead are brand supporters) to meet industry workers, and William Halstead were invited to a special gathering at the Town Hall in Bradford.

HRH gracefully met with Iain Milligan and Philip Seal from William Halstead and spoke for a few minutes about the Mill and the history behind the company. He was particularly interested in the archive book on display that shows designs from every cloth we have ever made from 1875 to present day. He then met with other representatives from local companies in the industry and proceeded to Haworth Scouring for a tour of their production plant.

The Campaigns website is and is doing magnificent work to raise the awareness of this magnificent fiber
