Eco Textiles

TreeAlthough much is said about the need to have environmentally sound practices to safeguard our future, very little is done.

Fibre Harvest meets the environmental challenges of textile production in a truly innovative way, as follows:

  • obtains fibre for the production of yarn and textiles from UK sustainable herds including sheep wool, alpaca, cashmere, mohair and other fine fibres.
  • utilises practices laid down by the Soil Association to achieve organic status.
  • manufactures 40% of its finished textiles (including knitwear and woven textiles) using hand techniques and manually operated machines;
  • manufactures yarns and textiles only to order. Consequently, there is no manufactured excess, using no more energy than necessary.
