We want all our wool to be responsibly sourced
How will we do this?
To ensure that the wool we use is sourced in a responsible way, we need to work to secure full traceability of the wool used in our supply chain. That means we will need to know where all our wool comes from, so that we can support positive animal welfare throughout the entire wool value chain.
Reasons to choose wool
- Wool is renewable, biodegradable and recyclable
- Wool is a natural, durable and strong material
- Wool ages beautifully and is resistant to stains
- Wool is highly thermal and breathable
- Wool dyes easily, so we can create many beautiful and varied design styles for you to choose from
Making responsibly sourced wool available for everyone
We are committed to using 100% responsibly sourced wool by the end of 2025. But that’s not enough. Rafael Elizondo, Responsible Sourcing Leader at IKEA says “We want others to join us in transforming the wool industry. We want to make responsibly sourced wool affordable for as many customers as possible”.
Respect – in every step of the way
Throughout our value chain, IKEA Suppliers work with strict requirements to protect not only the planet but also the people working in the industries that create our products. These requirements apply regardless of the location or industry involved.
Wool adds a welcoming warmth to any home. And the knowledge that it’s been responsibly sourced can even add a little extra peace of mind.
