ABOUT IRISH WOOL
Cushendale is one of only two remaining woollen mills in Ireland traditionally crafting exceptionally rare textiles using Irish wool. The locally sourced fleece is from the protected ‘Galway’ sheep and is dyed, carded and spun at our historic mill, creating a range of truly unique Irish textiles of authentic composition, provenance and craftsmanship. It is a great privilege and joy to continue to work with indigenous Irish wool, from fleece to fabric.
