Take a trip to the Outer Hebrides and taste your way through the fleece of Cheviot, Hebridean, Zwartbles and Black Welsh Mountain wool from innovative community mill Uist Wool, which has set up a business that aims to bring traditional textile crafts back to the remote island homes of these beautiful sheep. This brioche gradient wrap in natural sheep shades is a truly relaxing knit and a perfect way to sample new wools.
