Original Cumbrian Wool, Throws, travel rugs, cushion covers and fabric made from natural undyed Lakeland Wool

Original Cumbrian Wool is a group of farming families in the Lake District's Duddon Valley. To realise the true value of our mountain-bred wool, we decided to 'shepherd' it's processing and transformation into finished products. Our aim has been to secure some of the benefit of this control, and a greater proportion of the final remuneration for the original producer so contributing to sustainable development.

By taking our wool on a journey, Original Cumbrian Wool has established links with processors — scourers, spinners and weavers.

This web site shows items from our new 'DUNNERDALE’ range. There are variations of pattern, colour and breed combinations available and the co-operative is still exploring design possibilities.

 

 

The whole range is made from undyed, natural wool. We've called the colours we use Quartz (white-grey). Lichen (light-grey). Scree (mid-grey) and Peat (dark brown/black). The brushed finishes and combination of wool types used in the ‘DUNNERDALE’ range dispel the myth that mountain wool need be coarse and rough to the touch.
