Alison, or ‘Ali’ as she’s known to us, is our Sustainable Brand Manager. Her passion for sustainability and the environment drew her to the HD® Wool business where she can develop a product that truly walks the earth-friendly talk – 100% natural and renewable HD® Wool Apparel Insulation.
A real hands-on expert when it comes to sourcing our British wool, Ali helps us identify ethically grown wool that provides guaranteed traceability through our Woolkeepers® quality assurance platform. She also supports the alliance between HD® Wool Apparel Insulation and the Savory Institute’s Land to Market verified regenerative wool supply.
Ali’s not one to boast or talk too much about herself, so we had some fun shining the spotlight on her a bit!
