Woolwise.com is a resource for educators, researchers, consultants, students and other stakeholders in the wool industry. It was established using funds provided by the Co-operative Research Centre (CRC) for Premium Quality Wool and the former AWTA Ltd Wool Education Trust.
The Co-operative Research Centre for Premium Quality Wool was established on the 1st July 1993.
With funding provided by the AWTA Ltd Wool Education Trust (AWET) the original Woolwise web site was created in 1998 as a service to the wool industry and as a distribution vehicle for the wool education resources developed by the CRC over a period of many years. The CRC was wound up in 2000, and with the agreement of the partners the ongoing management and ownership of the site was reassigned to the AWTA Ltd Wool Education Trust, and it is now owned by the Australian Wool Education Trust (AWET).
The educational output from the CRC for Premium Quality Wool was transferred to the Trust and is available for free.
The content of the original Woolwise website has been maintained within this section of Woolwise as a record of the history and achievements of the CRC for Premium Quality Wool.
We invite you to explore further its activities and achievements.
