wool created in the north of england

The friendly team at Abraham Moon & Son have been incredibly helpful guiding us in the direction of the very best wools to cover our Chesterfields. Moons are the wool experts and have been creating beautiful fabrics since 1837. Together we picked out a beautiful, yet robust Herringbone wool range for the S.W. James collection. We think you will love the combination.

Leathers not for everyone

Why we love wool

We wanted to find a robust, versatile, and hard-working fabric that would accommodate a busy family lifestyle. As a family, we love smart furnishings but with our everyday life of muddy wellies and dirty dogs constantly walking through the house we needed a fabric to cover our chesterfields that could live with our needs. That fabric was wool, and so the love affair began.

Natural Care

Easy Care & Natural

The protective waxy coating on wool fibres makes wool products resistant to staining and they also pick up less dust as wool is naturally anti-static.

Wool is naturally safe. It is not known to cause allergies and does not promote the growth of bacteria. Thanks to its high water and nitrogen content, wool is naturally flame-retardant, and has a far higher ignition threshold than many other fibres

The team at S.W. James where kindly offered a tour of the factory and were taken through the steps it takes to create the Herringbone wool that will cover out Chesterfields. It was fascinating to see the full manufacturing process under one roof.
