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.
Created by glacial scraping and thousands of years of weathering, these fascinating geological features shelter many rare plants. Possibly the most famous outcropping of limestone pavement in the country lies above Malham Cove just outside the lovely Dales village of Malham, from where we source some of our fleece. Hill Top Farm in Malham is farmed by Neil Heseltine and his partner Leigh Weston who have made it their mission to create a more sustainable economy by farming in harmony with nature.
Wonderfully soft and comforting, the Westmorland Scarf is available in a dozen fabulous colours woven across three tones — light (cream fringe), medium (grey fringe), and dark (charcoal fringe):
