The pattern of our colourful Westmorland Scarf is inspired by the clints and grykes of limestone pavement, a geological feature found throughout the Yorkshire Dales National Park, including a wonderful example at Great Asby Scar in the old county of Westmorland.
Not far away is another even more famous limestone pavement atop Malham Cove just outside the lovely Dales village of Malham, from where I source some of the Bluefaced Leicester wool in these scarves. Hill Top Farm, run by fourth generation farmer Neil Heseltine and his partner Leigh Weston, has been setting the standard for sustainable and regenerative farming for many years and we are proud to support them.
Woven from 100% Bluefaced Leicester wool sourced from a dozen farms within a 30 mile radius of Sedbergh. Generously sized, this scarf is long enough to double over and thread through if that’s how you like to wear your scarves.
