Herdwick Tweed Bags and Home Accessories

The natural beauty of the Lake District National Park and the native Herdwick sheep who roam these fells are the inspiration behind our exclusive range of bags and home accessories.

Designed, hand cut and sewn in the Lake District, they are a modern reflection of our heritage.
Our tweed alters with each weaving as every year the natural shades of the yarn vary; Herdwick: Limited by Nature.

The Farms: We’re proud to buy our fleece directly from National Trust farmers at:

  • Hill Top Farm, Near Sawrey
  • Yew Tree Farm, Coniston
  • Townhead Farm, Grasmere
  • Tilberthwaite Farm, Coniston
 Herdwick Yew Tree Farm

Three Natural Colours: We pay the farmers to sort their flock before shearing, separating the natural shades of fleece.

  • Hogg fleece: dark brown, 1st shearing.
  • Twinter and young ewes: true grey, 2nd-4th shearing
  • Mature ewe fleece: light grey/pale white, 5th shearing

Unique Tweed: We use the farmers to transport the wool to Yorkshire for washing & combing. It’s then spun into 3 shades of high quality worsted yarn.

Our tweed is woven by skilled weavers in Huddersfield and Sedburgh.

Quality Products: Our bags & accessories are hand cut and sewn in Carlisle.

Upholsterers in Coniston design and sew our home furnishings.

We’re committed to supporting the lifestyle and traditional skills of Cumbria.
