Case Study

YoKo Wool Products Ltd.

With a shared passion for wool and knitted products, and the knowledge it has a great market for making, selling and supplying wool products, YoKo Wool founders knew that Ireland would be a source of inspiration and the perfect launch pad for their products. They moved here to set up YoKo Wool Products Ltd. based in Dublin, in 2009.
