New wool depot opens

SHEEP farmers from the region now have a new destination for their wool.

British Wool have opened a new Borders depot in Selkirk, covering the south region and replacing the Galashiels site.

CEO Andrew Hogley said: “The new site will improve our efficiencies and future proof our operations in this region, helping us towards our overarching aim of delivering the best possible wool price for our members.

“The facilities here will also allow us to host visits from farmers and to develop a showroom to promote Scottish wool products to buyers – and potential buyers – of British wool.”

Langholm farmer Jim Robertson, is the board member for Southern Scotland and British Wool chair, and he added: “I’m delighted that our new depot at Selkirk is now up and running. The investment in our region should give sheep farmers confidence that their wool is in the best hands once it’s delivered to British Wool which is as committed as ever to delivering value to its members.”
