Wooltops since 1951

From generation to generation with a strong sense of modernization and environmental care.

After WWII the late Textile Engineer Frank Raquet Hosey came from the United States to Uruguay.

Passionate about the wool fibre and motivated by its promising development in Uruguayan soils, Frank begun producing wool tops in 1951 after having found Engraw Export and Import Co S.A. in 1946.

We process mostly Uruguayan mulesing-free wool, produced by healthy sheep and following the best animal husbandry practices available. Our company is pioneer in our country in the use of wind power and we are proud to say that our mill runs almost completely (94%)on renewable energy. Moreover, we treat all effluents in order to protect our environment.
