The Chester Wool Collective (Chester Wool and Fyberspates) are committed to promoting equality and diversity throughout. We aim to be an inclusive organisation, committed to providing equal opportunities through the people we employ, be it on a permanent, part time or temporary basis. This also applies to our customers, the mills we spin our yarns with, the designers who design our patterns, the models we use to model our knitwear and our other collaborative partners and freelancers. We acknowledge there is always work to be done but we commit to always to put those values at the forefront of our business.

We realise that we are quite often the entry point for dyers entering our industry, and one of the primary ways we can increase the diversity of our dyers is to offer support particularly for people from marginalised groups. We can help with business startup advice for dyeing businesses, learning how to dye, how to structure and manage your small business, down to adapting your space to your needs if nessasary. If this is something you think would help you get started we would love to hear from you, or if you know someone who would benefit please get in touch with us.
