Jonathan Dyson, the editor of Twist magazine, shares his views as a journalist on the wool industry. He explains how there is a growing desire for information of which most of that is driven by the consumer. Consumers want to know more about the story behind the product. This has the effect that brands and retailers need to provide the consumer with more information and are therefore looking towards the supply chain to find it. Jonathan also talks about how all natural fibres are heading towards a situation where they need to focus on high-value products. This means consumers need to be made aware of why these products are more expensive and have more value attached.
