      The weathermen are forecasting another weekend of freezing temperatures and icy roads. The shortest day has passed, yet memories of the warm summer sun still seems almost a distant dream.

There’s obviously no easy answer. But as The Queen showed at the weekend, you don’t have to settle for […]

    Posted on May 13th, 2016

    As suppliers of wool-rich duffle coats, we’re huge fans of wool. Merino wool, recycled wool, sheep with wool. It’s all good in our book. But there’s only so much talking about wool you can do.
