Visit Our Mill - Yorkshire

Wool has always been deeply and historically connected to Yorkshire. Dating as far back as the bronze age, when wool was first woven into cloth, Yorkshire has been a predominant source for manufacturing wool. 

We partner with a number of mills across the UK, including Yorkshire, who uphold valued traditions and weaving methods to create blankets that are made to last. 

What Happens At The Mill 

There are many stages to turning raw wool into a throw for your home, involving a lot of time and care to get to the final product. 

Our Yorkshire mill is responsible for all these different stages when creating our Merino lambswool and pure new wool throws for us.

Before the wool can go into weaving, it is dyed and blended to create a rich colour. Up to seven different colours can be blended into the one yarn to create an overall colour, keeping them unique and full of depth. 

The wool is then carded, a combing process to smooth out the fibres and encourage them to form together, ready to be woven. 

The wool is then scoured (washed) and milled, which causes the fabric to compact together for a thicker and softer feel. 


The Heritage Of The Mill 

We are proud to partner with a mill who have been weaving since the early 1800's. Using long-standing traditions to maintain their renowned quality of weave, our Yorkshire mill oversee each step of the manufacturing process. From raw wool to finished product.

Based in the heart of Yorkshire, our mill has never compromised on quality. Even when the introduction of man-made fibres overwhelmed the textile industry, the mill continued to produced fine textiles for a luxury market. 

To refine their manufacturing process, the machines have modernized and developed over time; whilst the quality and process of the weave remains true to the mill's heritage.

People are the driving force of the mill, with so much of the machines preparation down to handling the wool by hand. Each person is trained within their area along the manufacturing line, a skill which is valued and has been perfected over time.
