With regret we have to announce that the Wool Directory is
closing. Our initial funding ended three years ago and the
Directory has been run on a voluntary basis since then. This has
become unsustainable and the Directory will not be taking any new listings from now on. The website will close at the beginning of April 2016 when the present
web hosting contract ends.
We would like to thank everyone who has added their details to the listings and everyone who has used the Directory.
Thank you all for your support.
