#FactFriday – did you know that when the first Australian wool was brought to the UK in 1807 it was brought to Hainsworth and deemed not quite good enough to be used at our mill? Samuel Marsden, who was from Farsley, returned to Australia with some Merino sheep as a result and when this fleece was returned to Hainsworth it was accepted. This is the origin of the Merino wool trade in Australia! #Friday #awhiansworth #choosewool #wool #manufacturing #heritage #history #yorkshire #madeinyorkshire #local #melton
