FLEECE & NATURAL FIBRES

Our North Country Cheviot fleeces come from Maria and John's own Lake District flock and the Heatherlea Cheviots from George and Sabrina Ross who are crofters in the Highlands.

processing

  • Fleece scoured in the UK
  • Processed into yarn in Italy

For this yarn we worked with a highly regarded Italian spinner to push the boundaries of Cheviot wool use, re-introducing the wonders of quality British wool to a European audience, and benefitting from their immense knowledge of fine yarn spinning. The mill shares our regenerative business values.

After care

  • Hand wash only - we recommend a wool wash
  • Air dry flat to keep shape
