How it’s made
We take our time…

Time is the most important component of any Dugdale cloth. We have been deliberate and painstaking in our process, to bring you The Merchant Fleece.

To begin, the wool is scoured and dried at a cooler temperature, to allow the wool to retain many of its natural features. Weaving is also slowed, operating to 242 picks per minute, rather than the norm of 586, which eradicates many of the faults created when weaving at higher pick rates. The cloth is then carefully finished with a double scour to remove any impurities from the weave, followed by a cold press to allow the natural fibres time to recover. This ensures a permanent natural lustre, rather than a mechanised “shine” or press.
