ISPO PARTNER 2019: HDWool® – Customised active insulation

When looking at bio based materials, renewable animal products are one of the key resources. Wool is traditionally the most commonly used. HDWool® provides experience with ethically grown British wool and a transparent and traceable route to the source.
