We have added two items this year that will bring you warmth for this fall and winter.
The lambswool scarf is woven in a number of traditional Scottish tartans. The scarf is 10 inches wide by 70 inches in length with a three inch fringe at each end. It is made of 100% Merino lambswool.
The scarf is made in Yorkshire, by the Highland Tweeds Mill that was established in 1837. At its height in the 19th Century Yorkshire was the world’s leading manufacturer of woolen textiles, helped by the secret ingredient of soft Pennine water. The invention of synthetic yarn in the 20th Century led to a decline in the woolen industry and only the mills supplying the highest quality woolen cloth have survived.
The Highland Tweeds Mill is one of Great Britain’s last remaining vertical woolen mills. Each floor contains a separate part of the manufacturing process, allowing quality control of every stage of production, from raw wool to finished product. This includes dyeing, blending, carding, spinning, warping, weaving and finishing.
The next item is our Dash Fingerless Mittens. These Fingerless Mittens, like our Fingerless Gloves, are designed to keep your fingers available for working while keeping the rest of your hands toasty warm. 40% possum fur, 50% Merino wool and 10% nylon. One size fits most.
