Our Fabrics & Knitwear
Our Woven Fabrics
Throughout our collections we have specifically chosen fabrics that provide the maximum possible comfort for your pooch, while being uncompromisingly stylish, sourced in England from textile mills who supply fabric to some of the top leading fashion houses of the world!
Our Mayfair tweed is our own signature branded fabric that our Creative Director - Sarah has designed in house and been woven locally in Yorkshire.
In the 1960’s, every well-dressed woman wanted to copy the classy look of Jackie Kennedy.
To do this you needed boucle fabric in a variety of pastel colours. Boucle is a yarn with a length of loops of similar size. One strand is looser than the other so as it is plied, the loose strand forms a loop.
Coco Chanel is credited with bringing tweed to high fashion.
In 1926 she introduced a tweed version of her signature cardigan jacket containing a mixture of fibres to give it a textured appearance. Chanel tweed suits of the 1950’s was the uniform of elite high society women all over the world.
Worsted is a high-quality type of wool yarn, the fabric made from this yarn, and a yarn weight category. The name derives from Worstead, a village in the English county of Norfolk. "Worsted" yarns/fabrics are distinct from woollens (though both are made from sheep's wool): the former is considered stronger, finer, smoother, and harder than the latter.
Our In House Design: 100% Wool
Our Suiting and Worsted: 100% Wool
Our seasons collections may vary in fabric compositions, wool being the primary factor.
Our purple signature lining, a finely woven duchess satin is non-stretch and has a gorgeous smooth finish. It doesn't have the usual high sheen finish like regular satin's, it's a more classic subtle sheen look.
For ultra protection all our woven fabrics are Dupoint TM Teflon coated, this is a harmless clear resin that protects natural fabrics against stains and spills without impacting the weight, feel, look or breathability.
This gives our products superiority, durability and better practicality against weathering, ageing, and prevents light rain from absorbing into the fabric.
Our knitwear has been carefully and responsibly sourced using only 100% extra fine Merino wool, produced and spun in Italy with Italian Merino sheep. Among these properties are its fantastic softness, shine and breathability. The fibres of Merino wool are softer, finer and more sensitive than many other wools.
We have chosen a fineness knit for versatility all year round, its lightweight for Spring and Summer or can be layered with a harness or jacket for Autumn and Winter seasons. The wool we’ve selected is then knitted directly to our specific patterns, using specialist interlocking and finishing’s.
This is what gives our brand exquisite luxury and attention to detail.
The costings in these jumpers are down to the quality and processes: from the yarn fibres, the origin of the sheep - which affects the coarseness of the wool, to constructing the jumper when in production. Like with most produce, changing or skipping these processes affects the initial and overall quality and price.
It is essential that we have chosen our wools and finishes like we have done, as this works with our price points given so our customers will only have the best of everything.
