Wool grease is currently in high demand, according to Nigel Hale, CEO of WoolWorks, because it is used in cosmetics, skincare, and medicines.
WoolWorks New Zealand is the country’s only producer and exporter of wool grease. Its prices have grown dramatically as a result of the increased demand for COVID-19 vaccinations.
New Zealand wool grease, according to Textile Value Chain, is one of the best in the world due to its high cholesterol content. Mills in Asia have been working overtime to increase production, although the product is primarily consumed in Asia.
Wool grease is exported to mills all over the world, including Japan, Mexico, the United States, the United Kingdom, India, and Belgium.
