With the long ‘lustre’ wool from the rare breed Whiteface Dartmoor sheep, twool have created a sustainable alternative for a range of everyday British made products.
British wool is an under used natural material, something that twool is striving to change.
Whiteface Dartmoor sheep are one of Britain’s most ancient breeds, they are indigenous to Dartmoor and an important part of our heritage. They are kept in small flocks around Dartmoor by farmers who protect the breed’s future through the Whiteface Dartmoor Breeders Association.
twool are championing the breed, but this isn’t just about history, it’s about the future and innovation. The wool from this fantastic local resource has a long staple length which enables us to spin a worsted yarn perfect for our range of British made products.
“Our hope is that twool will be a modern day thread linking sheep and wool in a commercial marketplace and be a potential life-line for this rare breed sheep.”
