A beautiful, unique and sustainable composite material made from wool.
Inspired to bring some manufacturing back to their hometown of Buckfastleigh, an ancient woollen town in South West England, Solidwool have created a new way of working with wool.
They use the coarse wool from the iconic Herdwick sheep of the Lake District, historically used in the UK carpet industry. Demand for this wool is in decline and is considered almost worthless, a by-product of sheep farming. The wool is combined with bio-resin in a unique process they have developed. The resulting material can be thought of as similar to fibreglass.
With this material they have designed and manufactured the Hembury Collection. A range of beautiful, classic furniture, designed to last and made to cherish. In addition to their own collection, they also collaborate with other companies who see a use for Solidwool in their range.
