A closer look at Cromford

Made from soft and silky lambswool, Cromford is one of our finer, lighter throws, just the thing for those that want something a little less fluffy than sheep’s wool but that’s less precious than the likes of cashmere and merino. Its subtle herringbone pattern brings visual texture too, woven in two subdued shades of denim blue and grey-beige.

Why lambswool?

Lambswool yarn comes from a sheep’s first shearing. At this stage, the fleece is very fine and soft, which means it needs very little in the way of processing, and is part of what gives Cromford its supple handle. Like all wool, lambswool is also biodegradable, insulating, strong and hypoallergenic.

In the making

Cromford is created by our family-run partner mill in Delph, a village which sits on the border of Lancashire and Yorkshire. They start with the fleeces straight from the farm, before washing, spinning, dyeing, weaving and finishing their wool textiles themselves.

The weave

Twill is one of the simplest weaving techniques. Depending on the loom, it’ll create either a chevron pattern – like in Cromford – or diagonal lines across the fabric. Either way, twill textiles are strong and drape well, which makes them ideal for blankets.

A styling tip or two

Using layers of textiles in a room will help create a very inviting space, including on a bed, where you could combine Cromford with another throw like Croft or Delph which have similar colours in them but would be a contrast in weight and texture. In a living room, you could make it part of a largely neutral scheme with a few hints of blue – try it with the Thurston Ink throw and Isla Swallow cushions.
