Soft and smooth, Merino Lambswool creates throws that retain their shape, resist odour and have excellent insulating and wicking properties, keeping you warm when it’s cold and cool when it's warmer.
The Merino Lambswool fibres are extremely fine, ranging from 18 – 24 microns, and flexible with natural elasticity. It does not have the scratchy quality that some wools have, making it very comfortable next to the skin. While lightweight, it provides a great deal of warmth.
Wool is hypoallergenic and naturally fire-retardant.
scooms wool throws are produced in the UK by a family owned business that has been in operation since 1837. They are world leaders in dyeing, spinning, weaving, blending and finishing, creating beautiful products that you can cherish for a lifetime.
Sustainably sourced wool
The wool used in our throws is predominantly from South Africa, delivered directly to the mill in the UK. They are passionate about best farming practices. All their wool is fully traceable. The sheep are all free range, pasture fed and non-mulesed. The farmers adhere to the five animal freedoms and welfare codes.
After shearing, the wool is scoured using eco-friendly detergents and without the use of bleach. Once the raw wool has been inspected and baled, it is delivered straight to the mill where every stage of production from natural wool to finished product is overseen, ensuring the highest standards. The mill operates using efficient energy and water conscious environmental measures.
Wool is entirely renewable and biodegrades within a very short timescale.
