Three Natural Colours: We pay the farmers to sort their flock before shearing, separating the natural shades of fleece.

  • Mature ewe fleece: light grey/pale white, 5th shearing

Unique Tweed: Our farmers transport the wool to Yorkshire for washing & combing. It’s then spun into 3 shades of high quality worsted yarn.

The tweed is woven by skilled weavers in Huddersfield and Sedbergh.

Handbag received this morning.
It's beautifully made and oozes quality.
My wife loves it and is delighted.


The "Derwent" arrived at 8.15am, it's brilliant and Jean is over the moon.
Thank you for all you have done to bring this bit of Cumbria into our lives.


Just wanted to say a big thank you.
I absolutely love my bag and make-up bag; they are amazing.
