british merino project

GROWN, SHEARED, SPUN AND KNITTED IN THE UK.

Bamford is proud to be launching a first-of-its-kind merino wool knitwear collection, made entirely from natural fibres that have been grown at Daylesford Organic farm in the Cotswolds, sheared, spun and knitted in the UK. The milestone collection is made from superfine merino wool that is 100% traceable from the farm where the fibres are grown, all the way through to the finished garments – without transporting overseas or across airways.

Transparency and a commitment to treading lightly is at the heart of this collection and we are proud to be championing UK wool and a longstanding British knitwear heritage. 

639 miles. That's all.

The average supply chain for a merino sweater is 18,000 miles – that’s 30 times the length of the UK. Our Home-grown Merino wool travels no further than 639 miles from farm to shop.
