Woolmark EPS downloaded from Brands of the World
The Woolmark logo, designed by Italian graphic artist Francesco Saroglia, was launched in 1964 in Britain, the US, Japan, Germany, Holland and Belgium.
“The need for a single universal image for wool quality was the driving force behind the creation of the Woolmark. In 1997, the International Wool Secretariat changed its name to The Woolmark Company to associate its corporate identity more closely with the brand.”

Did you know?
Did you know that the Woolmark symbol can only be used on products made of 100 percent wool? According to a study commissioned by Woolmark owner AWI, less than half of those who recognise the symbol globally know its purpose.
The Woolmark Blend symbol is for products containing a minimum of 50% new wool, and the Woolblend symbol represents products with 30-49% new wool. More info on The Woolmark Company website.
In the words of Ben, “This is one of the best logos in the world. OK?”
Thanks for the Merino wool link, Tjeerd.
