Woad Inc

These wool blankets are dyed in Norfolk using natural woad indigo pigment, which they grow organically on the farm there. They're part of a small organisation called Produced in Norfolk which works to protect rural skills from dying out, such as thatching and cider making and wild bee keeping. Picture: Woad Inc.

Insanely cosy looking jumpers from this delicious, brand-new knitwear company, based on a farm in Pembrokeshire. The top jumper here has two little buttons on the back, and is £190; the second is knitted from undyed Dorset and Welsh Black Mountain wool, and is £180. They will see you through the coldest winter.
