Our textiles last a lifetime and are something to be cherished, minded and passed on to the next generation. What could be more sustainable?

What makes Cushendale sustainable?

Wheather its the natural fibres in our textiles, the 800 year old mill race we care for and maintain or the way we work together, passing on skills and learnings from generation to generation, sustainability is at the heart of Cushendale.


100% Natural

Our wool is 100% natural, grown year-round by sheep living on a simple diet of water, air, sunshine and grass.



All of our wools are fully traceable to their origin, and our Irish wool is traceable all the way back to the individual farm and sheep.


Ancient Water Source

We use a naturally occurring water source for all our wet processes, brought to us by our 800 year old mill race.


Certified Yarns

Our mohair and merino lambswool yarns are certified by the Oeko-Tex STANDARD 100 and The Responsible Wool Standard.


100% Biodegradable

When disposed of, wool decomposes by slowly releasing valuable nutrients back into the soil.


Repairs Promise

We provide free repair kits, tailored to your Cushendale throw, blanket and scarve.


Plastic Free

All of our packaging is 100% plastic-free and our yarns have a zero microplastic footprint.

Irelands Oldest Mill Race

We use a naturally occurring water source in creating our yarns and textiles. The water comes from our very own Mill Race, which is over 800 years old, and brings clear soft water to the mill from nearby Brandon Hill.
