Make yourself comfortable I’m going to spin you a yarn…

The stars aligned on the day that Alan, from Laxtons yarn spinners, came to visit. He’d seen us banging on about making in the UK and being bothered about where materials are sourced and he felt strongly that the provenance of his Sheepsoft yarn was the perfect match for us.

He told us that the yarn was made from the wool of two breeds of sheep in the Yorkshire Dales. This immediately had us on the hook. That this special yarn is both soft and hardwearing had us swallowing the line and sinker.

With the globalised economy we’re so used to wool coming from the other side of the world, that to be offered UK sourced wool that’s also soft was an opportunity we weren’t going to miss. 

A century of spinning excellence...

Laxtons are speciality worsted and fancy yarn spinners and have been for over 100 years. Their mill is near Bradford in Baildon, West Yorkshire. Wool comes from the exquisite Bluefaced Leicester for softness and Masham for durability.

Knitted in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire.

This jumper is a tangible example of the way that clothing can be made sustainably. There’s full traceability allowing us to produce a natural, renewable and ultimately biodegradeable garment.

The process supports UK farmers and manufacturers, whilst maintaining high levels of animal welfare.

Sheep to yarn all happens within 50 miles. Yarn to finished jumper in 69 miles. Jumper to HebTroCo in 68 miles.

That’s not bad is it?

Is it itchy?

Ed is sensitive to these things and he’s happy wearing this jumper over a t-shirt. The roll edge neck doesn’t irritate him. If you are super sensitive then you probably wouldn’t want to wear it with nothing underneath. So the answer is that it’s much softer than British wool usually is, but some people may still find it a bit itchy.
