the original performance fibre
Natural, renewable, biodegradable. Our wool yarns are made from the fleeces of Britain’s traditional and rare breed sheep, raised in the UK. The wool is organically dyed and spun in Cornwall at a Soil Association certified mill.
Each breed of sheep has its own colour and characteristics, some a rich black, others creamy white. These sheep have been braving the Great British weather for centuries, so their fleeces are specially adapted for the climate.
Manx Loaghtan sheep
A traditional breed from the Isle of Man, Manx sheep have up to six horns and a milk chocolate brown fleece.
Our garments in Chocolate Olive and Cream Olive colours feature natural and overdyed olive Manx Loaghtan yarn.

One of the oldest sheep breeds in the UK, Hebrideans have a naturally black or bitter chocolate coloured fleece. Our jackets tend to the bitter chocolate, with some yarns overdyed to a black plum.
