The Herdwick sheep who roam the Lake District fells are the inspiration for our exclusive range of bags, accessories, cushions & caps. The natural shades of the fleece is woven into subtle pure wool tweed. Designed, hand cut & sewn our products are a reflection of the farming heritage of Cumbria.
Our tweed alters with each weaving determined by the natural shades of fleece.
Herdwick: Limited by Nature.
These videos tell you some of our story so far:
Filming with Kate Humble for Back to the Land was great fun but at the end of the first episode disaster had struck and our yarn wouldn't weave. Kate returned six months later to finish the story....
Will & Emma Benson along with trainees Jack & Lily live at Townhead Farm, Grasmere. Descended from generations of Cumbrian hill farmers Will's passion for this way of life is evident.
This gives an insight into their way of life and why the Lake District is a World Heritage Site.
This was our first video; then an amateur film-maker my nephew Tom has moved onto bigger projects..most recently "The Last Press" about cider and Lands End Farm, Somerset. This film is staying put, Herdwick is all about "roots".
We are purposefully not a “click & buy” business.
The individual style pages show details of the products and what tweed it is available in.

My wife loves it and is delighted.
The "Derwent" arrived at 8.15am, it's brilliant and Jean is over the moon.
Thank you for all you have done to bring this bit of Cumbria into our lives.
My dad is 70 on July 13th.
Coniston is one of his favourite places-we spent many happy childhood holidays there.
I want a gift to remind him.
