Wool Plain/Check


We import from one factory in India that weaves and dye wool. This wool comes from old sweaters (pullovers) which are made from 80/85% pure wool and the balance is a mix of acrylics to give the wool its stability (form) otherwise the wool will stretch.


MAIN FEATURES:

1. All of our wool is woven to 210cm in width whereas our competitor can only weave to 184cm. This is important as it gives a better drop on the sides of larger horses. Also, for Saddlecloths, it gives 3 pcs across the 210cm width with no wastage.

2. Pure Wool content 80/85% whereas we have found out a competitor has reduced wool content and added extra acrylics in the weave which is causing them problems of an inferior product.

3. There are 2 styles of wool fabric – one called “Kersey” which is the plain colours and the other is called “Collarcheck” which has patterns.

We carry the following in plains (Kersey):

  • Black, Navy, Purple, Pink, Red (Scarlet), Bottle Green, Royal Blue, and Pale Blue.

We carry the following colours in patterns “Collarcheck”:

  • Original (Navy/Gold): Pink/Purple Check: Blackwatch (Tartan): Aqua/Navy: Red/Royal Blue:

4. We sell by roll metreage which averages 20 mtrs/roll plus we cut to metreage length
at a higher price than roll.
