Natural wool fibres are not only used in our knitwear, but also the majority of our suiting, tailoring and outerwear. Woven woollen fabrics have the ability to be eased perfectly into shape for the skilled art of tailoring a jacket or coat.
How It's MadeAll fleeces are graded by the age of the sheep, the number of times shorn and the length and fineness of the fibres. Short fibres are used for spinning and higher-grade, longer to create worsted yarns. Most of our suiting is made from worsted yarns that are combed so they lay straight next to each other and are then spun to create a smooth surface. Worsted cloths are finished with shearing to further clean away fine fibres and enhance the luxurious handfeel. Why We Use ItWool insulates against both the heat and cold and can absorb up to 30 per cent of its weight without feeling damp. Wool cloths can be finished to control shrinkage, moth damage and repel liquids. On average two suits can be made from one fleece and fabrics made with long wool fibres have a natural elasticity which smooths out wrinkles. View Ways To Care
