Scottish Lambswool – Crafted by Experts

Scottish Lambswool – Crafted by Experts

For our newest knitwear collection, we sought the help of a lambswool specialist from the north of Scotland. The resulting clothes are soft and light with a slightly outdoorsy look, perfect for throwing on as the temperature falls.

Our expert partners have been working with lambswool since 1929, and they know how to bring out the best in this traditional material.

They wash the wool in soft, crystal clear Scottish water till any hardness in the fibres breaks down, giving an almost silky feel and a surprising lightness to the material.

Equally, there’s nothing chunky about this knitwear. Using state of the art machines, each garment is knitted as a single piece of material. That means there’s no need for seams or any of the awkward ridges that can form around them.

The colours of the wool are special too. We created subtly marbled shades by twisting several different coloured yarns of wool together, resulting in beautiful, understated blends that are unique to Sunspel. Whether it’s bottle green or navy mouline, these deep, complex tones will match any winter wardrobe.

Available in throw-on-and-go jumper dresses, elegant funnel necks, and classic crews, our lambswool collection is as varied as it is versatile. Wear it to work with chinos on a blustery morning, or slip it on for a Sunday spent curled up on the sofa. Whenever you choose to wear it, you won’t want to take it off.
