Colours & Upholstery

wool created in the north of england by the experts

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.

When it came to selecting the wools to be included in the S.W. James range, we opted for only the finest Herringbone wool, sourced from one of the oldest wool mills in the UK. Herringbone is an attractive design that uses multiple colours. We have selected if for our range as it is a strong hard-wearing weave.

Why we love wool

We wanted to find an excellent robust and versatile, 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.
