MADE IN SCOTLAND
Making all our products in Scotland means we can minimise the distance of our manufacturing base ensuring a relatively low carbon footprint.
heritage and innovation
WHERE WE MAKE
We use the best heritage factories and mills to create our knitwear and fabrics. We design, develop and make product at our workshop in the heart of the Kingdom of Fife close to the home of golf, St Andrews.
merino wool process
THE CLOSED LOOP
Our partner mill Todd & Duncan based in Loch Leven, uses a closed loop system on all water used in the production of our merino wool yarns. The mill is on the banks of Loch Leven, and for good reason: the water’s natural purity and softness helps to open up the wool fibres, resulting in wonderfully consistent colour, and soft handle. The fibre is dyed before it’s spun – a gentle process that gives a superior colour result and finished handle.
The dyes are environmentally friendly, so the water used can be cleaned and returned to Loch Leven once dyeing is complete. This keeps the Loch pure and ensures we minimise our use of natural resources. This process is what is known as a 'Closed Loop' manufacturing process.
The Merino Wool used is also RWS certified, meaning it is fully organic and the sheep are treated with the highest possible consideration and care, adhering to the globally recognised five key animal freedoms.
Our workshop and all of the factories and mills we work with use renewable energy sources.
