The wonder of wool

 

Little beats the timeless elegance of upholstery and curtain fabric that is 100% wool.  Warm, durable, tactile and each of these favourites of mine have a slight coarseness that you only really get with a natural fabric.

Ian Mankin has recently launched their first range of wools, the Ashfield Collection, which includes four great plain herringbones, Haworth, which cost £49.50 a metre.  Woven at their mill in Lancashire, all the designs in the the collection are reversible, so that either side of the fabric can be used to create a different effect.   Being wool they  are also naturally flame-retardant without the addition of any chemicals.

Tinsmith’s also have a fabulous range of wools with seven herringbones at a £42 a metre for the Herringbone Wool and £47 a metre for the larger scaled Galloway Wool.

Finally The Isle Mill has a more unusual Orkney range which with a slight slub is surprisingly soft to touch.  Available in 16 earthy colours from Kingdom Interiors. at £64.40 a metre.
