Angus is our plain, pure wool fabric. It’s a strong textile that can withstand plenty of wear and tear, but it’s supple enough to use for a variety of furnishings – it can work for curtains, blinds and cushions as well as upholstery. Flint is a mottled, heathered dark grey, which can feel smart or cosy depending on the setting, and is also forgiving when it comes to marks, making it an ideal choice for sofas and armchairs in a busy home.
Design & engineering
There are lots of reasons to love pure wool. It’s strong and hypoallergenic, and it happens to be insulating and breathable too, so despite being thought of as a fabric only for cold months, it’ll keep you cool in summer too. It also holds its shape well, which makes it ideal for upholstery.
Flint is inspired by the colours of the British landscape and blends stone grey with earthy brown flecks. This mix complements almost any natural material or colour, especially wood, which dials up the warmth.
Doing the right thing
Pure wool is an easy to care for fabric that’s not only a renewable source, but it’s also biodegradable and has a long life cycle. This is proven by its high rub count score which means it can withstand plenty of wear and tear (this is the number of times the fabric can be rubbed before the abrasion begins to break the yarn).

Care & need to knows
Suitable for dry cleaning.
Keep pilling to a minimum by steering clear of abrasive cleaning products and gently sponging away marks when required.
Need to know
There can be some colour variation between different batches of our fabric – we try to make this as minimal as possible, but it’s something to be expected with natural fibres. If you’re using this fabric more than once in the same room, we recommend ordering as many metres as you need in one go –that way, we can make sure it’s all from the same batch.
A note on safety: if you’d like to use this fabric to upholster a piece of furniture yourself, then you should purchase an interliner (which you can find at upholstery and fabric shops) to go with it. This is also known as a barrier cloth which is used underneath the main fabric to ensure that the upholstered furnishing meets fire regulations. It won’t make the fabric completely fire retardant, but it will slow down a fire should it catch alight. Of course, if you order this or any of our fabrics on Neptune pre-upholstered pieces, we’ll also use the relevant interliner.
