It is a wonderfully adaptable material, as well suited to upholstering a modern piece of furniture to being used as cloth for outerwear. It is warm, hypo allergenic, breathable and entirely natural. Traditional and stylish, grown and produced in Britain.
Herdwick lambs are born pure black, turning a rich chocolate brown in their first year. As the ewes age they get paler, some becoming almost pure white but most remaining grey for the rest of their adult life. By separating these colours at shearing time it gives the opportunity of having yarn spun in different shades and therefore varying designs.
Our Herdwick Tweed is pure, undyed, sustainable and iconic.
The incredible Herdwick sheep, which are as much a part of the Lake District as the very fells upon which they graze, are the direct legacy of the dedicated farming communities who continue to live and work here. Together they are guardians of this glorious terrain, which is now recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
