The finest Scottish-spun wool
Our superfine wool arrives in Scotland by boat once a year, sourced from a special breed of sheep in South Africa.
With a fibre diameter of c. 18.5 microns, it is one of the world's finest and softest Lambs Wools. (Most average 21-24 microns). We have knitted this style into a luxurious 3 gauge jumper.
It is here in Scotland that the wool is spun and dyed on the banks of Loch Leven in Kinross by Todd & Duncan, one of the finest Scottish Mills which has been spinning yarn for 150+ years.
85% of the dyes used by Todd & Duncan are organic and the water used for washing and dyeing the wool is cleaned and purified before being returned to Loch Leven to be used again. It is a pioneering and cyclical process that helps to protect the environment in and around the loch.
The wool is sent to a small factory in Scotland, where our socks are knitted in a 9gg and fully-fashioned - where each piece of the sock is knitted separately and then linked together by hand and hand-finished.
