CARING FOR YOUR KNITWEAR

Wool is part of Britain's heritage and has played an important role throughout the years. Wool production  was a major part of the economy in medieval times and was described as "the jewel in the realm".  In more recent history the industrial revolution with the introduction of more efficient transportation transformed many cities, but none more than Leeds, which was said to be built on wool. ​The demise for the demand for British wool happened in the mid 1960's when cheaper imports started to flood the UK.

Today as seen an increase in artisan wool producers and the re-kindling for quality wools throughout the UK including Scotland and the islands of Scotland.
