Woolman is Nigel Thompson, a British expat who has been living in Biella, Italy, for 40 years.
Biella was one of the textile manufacturing capitals but the crisis that stroke the sector has left the city in ruins and many of its people out of work.
There Nigel, one of the few raw wool experts in the world, created a new “sheep to shop” business model that benefits the farmers. His completely traceable and sustainable line of production keeps a dying industry alive and Europe woven together.
