Hand tufted Swaledale wool Tup rug in undyed natural pure British wool. Each rug has individual markings. Our wool comes from local sheep and is sent to Lanark Mill for washing and combing before spinning and finishing according to the Soil Association’s strict guidelines. Lanark Mill produces ethical, environmentally friendly yarn by using renewable energy from its own hydo-electricity plant.

Nicky Barfoot’s work has been nominated by Loraine McClean. Loraine emailed saying;
“I love the work of Nicky Barfoot. She translates life drawings into knitting and manages to create a really dimensional look and movement, using just stitch & tone. She is interested in the perception of knitting as a cosy domestic / female activity and is keen to dispel this myth.”
SCARLET AND ARGENT
“We love our Twill & Granite throws! What’s not to love about these beautiful throws, the name itself derives from the two special weaves which has been used to create subtle stripes giving it texture, yet being incredibly soft. With a choice of 5 colours; berry, lavender, mint, natural and camel, there is a colour to suit everyone. Made from Merino wool, the Twill & Granite throws also have matching cushions.
Scarlet & Argent are passionate about true British quality, which is why all our blankets and throws are made in our Yorkshire mill – from the selection of raw wool to the hand-finished touches.
