Lesley Prior has worked as a Consultant in several projects over the last few years. One of the most high profile was work for the American Defence Department in Afghanistan on a cashmere development program where setting Breeding Objectives, managing data, creating health plans and feeding regimes were all necessary to complete a project begun earlier.


Lesley is able to bring a wealth of practical experience to establishing and managing Fine Wool and Cashmere projects and can also offer extensive contacts throughout the processing, retailing and fashion world. Whether it’s setting up a Cashmere breeding unit in Switzerland or creating a wool to garment processing chain, Lesley can probably help.

In addition to running her own enterprise, Lesley donates time and effort to The Campaign For Wool, the organisation set up in 2010 by HRH The Prince of Wales to promote and encourage the use of wool throughout the world. Lesley is also a member of the Australian Superfine Wool Growers Association and was honoured in 2016 to be asked to speak at their annual congress held in Tasmania.
