Scoured Wool

An environmentally friendly process that does more than just wash wool

Scouring wool is an essential process. It’s the procedure that takes greasy wool and transfigures into the luscious fibre that covers the decks of cruise ships and makes up the woollen clothes that we wear.

So, is scouring technically just the process of washing wool? Sure. But it’s a long and powerful procedure that we do entirely in-house. And, because it’s completed in-house, it allows us to offer you fast, flexible delivery times that can be sent straight from our factory.

Straight from the Sheep’s back

The process starts when we’re delivered wool straight from a sheep’s back. It’s full of impurities. It’s not the type of thing that you want to be lining your coat with. Scouring is what takes this wool and makes it fit for use.

Industrial Scouring Machines

To do this, we take the raw wool and run it through our industrial scouring machines. These machines then sort and sift the wool through various sections of warm water. Each section gradually makes it cleaner by sifting and washing the dirt away. Finally, the wool is passed through detection systems and de-dusting machines to further purify the product.

And that’s not even the most impressive part. What we’re proud of is the fact that we have made this system environmentally sustainable. The dirt that is washed from the wool is turned into compost for rhubarb farms, the extracted metal is recycled, and the water is processed in conjunction with our local water services company. The pride that we take in our environmental impact has earned us our GOT’S and Red Tractor certificates. The full procedure has been designed to meet ISO14001 standards.
