Dr. Terry Townsend as chair of  rectifies fake fakts about growing natural fibres in a podcast of Elisabeth van Delden. He points out why it is so important for natural fibres to connect and defend themselves against the synthetic fibres industry.

Terry also explains how some of the so-called fake facts about natural fibres exist and rectifies some of the allegations made. These include destroying the environment and using too much land. The cotton and wool industry can learn a lot from each other as the economic challenges continue for natural fibres in the future.
