Our Purpose

To make practical & desirable, quality products with traceability of raw materials  

Four Farms: we buy directly from our farmers paying extra for fleece to be sorted into the natural shades.

  • Hill Top Farm, Near Sawrey
  • Yew Tree Farm, Coniston
  • Townhead Farm, Grasmere
  • Tilberthwaite Farm, Coniston

Three Natural Shades: fleece is transported to Yorkshire, the traditional wool industry experts; for washing, carding & spinning into three shades of fine worsted yarn.

  • Hogg fleece-1st shearing. Darkest brown.
  • Twinter and young ewes: 2nd-4th shearing. True Grey
  • Mature ewe fleece: 5th shearing. Light grey/pale white,

Two Weavers: Skilled weavers in Slaithwaite, Yorkshire & Sedbergh, Cumbria; create our tweeds.
Traditional, uncomplicated weaves suit the yarn and display the fibres that are within the raw fleece. 
Rough tweed then goes to Galashiels for finishing- tweed is washed, scratched by natural teasels, shaved and pressed.
