Shaniko Wool Company is the first U.S. Farm Group to supply certified wool under the Responsible Wool Standard (RWS), developed by Textile Exchange. We established the Farm Group to scale the economics and supply of RWS-certified U.S. wool available to U.S. brands.

RWS ensures the welfare of sheep, the land they graze on and the workers who tend both:

  • Full traceability.

  • Third-party audits of land management, animal husbandry practices and worker welfare. The annual audits of land management and animal husbandry practices include all aspects of worker education and training.  This documented review of ranching practices by a reputable certification body, increases confidence for all those choosing RWS certified wool.                 

  • Increased confidence for those choosing Shaniko Wool Company.

  • Shaniko Farm Group and member ranches support the United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
