Lost Isle Project is a new brand of simple, natural, sustainable accessories made exclusively from British wool. The launch collection – a succinct edit of colourful hats – is a celebration of British material and manufacturing.
Globally, only 25% of clothing is made from natural fibres such as wool – the rest is made from fossil fuels. Our research showed that the effects of fast fashion and now the pandemic has only exacerbated the difficulties sheep farmers face in the UK, with many of them disposing of their fleeces rather than incur the cost of storing and transporting the raw material.
“…we’ve grown up with it for so long that most people have eventually forgotten about it [wool] and not realised that this is something special".”
The British wool industry is centuries old with a proud tradition of sheep farming. We have more sheep breeds than any other country and over 40,000 sheep farmers working hard across the British Isles.
Our aim is to champion and utilise British wool – a natural resource abundant across our Isle - It’s really that simple.
