Sheep’s wool is currently only a sustainable by-product of agriculture in many parts of Europe. The processing of wool has a long tradition in the Salzkammergut, but this has become less important in recent decades. Recently, sheep’s wool has been increasingly discussed again in international expert circles as a sustainable textile raw material. The Wool Symposium is dedicated to this trend and its potential significance for the region.

The symposium is an event for artistic and artisanal research into the wool of sheep from the region. It combines tradition, craftsmanship and creative experimentation and offers a platform for networking to bring together experts, craftspeople, farmers, entrepreneurs and wool enthusiasts.
