About

Romney Marsh Wools is a local British Wool company which is responsible for producing and selling high value bespoke wool items, as well as other farm goods.


I developed my interviewing and networking skills which has given me more confidence and in turn, encouraged me to challenge myself and try new things to produce something even better. I have had the chance to meet some incredibly inspiring people and explore an area which I have never even considered doing so before.


It’s one thing to tell a person about something you feel passionately about but it’s another to make them feel that passion too. But now, I can honestly say that my views on man-made and natural products, supermarkets and local businesses and country life in general has massively changed.
