Have a look at our sustainability policy also for some more information

"Make A Difference – Choose Wool. Every year sheep produce a new fleece; making wool a natural, renewable fibre source. Wool has inherent natural biodegradable properties in the land and ocean to benefit the planet which is choking from waste plastic, man-made and micro-fibres. We can all make a difference by choosing wool to help safeguard the planet for future generations "

We love wool at Hettie . The wool we use for our collections is sourced from Abraham Moon who have a long history and heritage in Britain and are renowned throughout the world. They weave their stunning wool in one of the last remaining vertical mills in the UK which was established in 1837 , the same year Queen Victoria came to the throne .The sheep used for the wool are well cared for also and there is traceability throughout the supply chain
