Frequently Asked Questions

Where does the wool come from?

Wool from Australian and New Zealand sheep is used to create our blankets and throws. This is because the warm climates there produce a finer, softer wool fibre. Due to the relatively cold climate in the UK, the wool produced here is too coarse for blankets or clothing and is mostly used in carpets.

Where are the products made?

From the moment the raw wool is delivered to the creation of the finished product, it is processed solely at our specialist woollen weaving mill in Yorkshire. This means we have full control throughout, from blending the wool, spinning the yarn, weaving, dyeing and all other finishing processes.

What are the benefits of wool?

Wool is an amazing natural fibre that is perfect for blankets and throws some of its many benefits include…

Comfort and Warmth, wool allows the skin to breath more easily, keeping you warm in winter and cool in summer. Using more wool in bedding helps you enjoy 25% more deep regenerative sleep and improved fire safety properties.

Recent studies show that when sleeping under wool, the heart rate will be statistically lower for the whole sleep period providing a more rested condition. Features such as wool’s natural crimp and moisture wicking ability make it the preferred fibre choice for day to day comfort in all seasons.

Wool maintains its shape ensuring good appearance for longer due to natural ‘bounce back’.

Durability and Quality, our blankets and throws are made in Yorkshire with only the finest wool. Our satisfied customers regularly tell us that our blankets and throws wear incredibly well and last for decades becoming a familiar and treasured feature of their family home.

Are your products moth proofed?

We do not moth proof our fabric because the chemical used to treat against moths is harmful to the environment and is now illegal.

How can I protect my blanket or throw from any moth damage?

Professionally Dry Cleaning your blanket or throw before storing will help protect it because moths are attracted to food stains and body oils. Cedar wood cubes scattered inside will also help prevent any moth damage from occurring.
