Our Ambassadors

We are grateful to the incredible people and businesses who are helping us achieve our goals.

We encourage you to support them in kind.

We simply couldn’t run the Campaign for Wool New Zealand without the voluntary support and selfless contribution of our Ambassadors.

We are growing our Ambassador’s Programme with the vision of creating a large group of like-minded people pursuing a better future for New Zealand wool.

Please get in touch with our team to get involved.   Thank you.

Robert Macfarlane, Macfarlane Design

Robert has built a strong portfolio of residential and commerical interior work. His design philosophy is centred around a process of close consultation to understand your needs and ideas, while bringing his own expertise and experience to bear.

Whether working on a commercial or residential, Robert believes there is often a wool answer. Not only is it hardwearing, wool breathes and is perfect for use in rugs, carpets, upholstery, drapery, manchester, wall coverings, insulation and has many acoustic applications.

Robert, thank you for being an active supporter of the Campaign.
