AS wool producers will be aware, the grading depot at Muckamore welcomes wool all year round. They also have a team of trusted collection sites across Northern Ireland assisting Ulster Wool during specific times of the year to ensure the service provided is convenient and to a high standard.

Ulster Wool Depot Manager Jayne Harkness-Bones commented: “We are very lucky to have such a dedicated team of people working on our behalf in providing producers with a high standard of service in helping and supporting them to get their wool in.”
