Perhaps England's most prestigious vertical woollen mill, Hainsworth has been responsible for weaving the look of iconic England ever since the company was established in 1783. Many of the famous images that have been used across the world to celebrate Great Britain are made unforgettable through the use of Hainsworth cloth.
True craftsmanship starts with the selection of the best possible fibres, a knowledge and skill passed down through the Hainsworth family for over 230 years. We carefully select only the best-quality fleeces from Britain, Australia and New Zealand, matching the fleece and fibre qualities to the end use of the fabric, ensuring a truly beautiful finish that no other mill can match. Through the generations we have learned the best way to craft cloth to make it perfect for its specific end use; be it apparel, furnishings or wall coverings. We control the weave all the way down to the placement of individual fibres within the construction to ensure we optimise the benefits to the end application.
