British Wool - Knitted Lamp

Bold Colours may have been adorning our wardrobes in 2011, but British Wool is bringing the colour blocking trend into the home from the floor up with a collection that is big, bright and bold. Whilst British Wool naturally offers robust resilience as a carpet fibre it also brings a unique twist to innovative accessories and clothing in glorious technicolour and tactile texture.

“Teaming high quality craftsmanship in shades that omit high intensity, British homes will be crying out for home grown wool” says Irfan Khan, Promotions Manager at The British Wool Marketing Board “With the growing trend for all things British, it’s great to be collaborating with so many innovative companies that make fantastic products from British Wool.”

Where There’s A Wool There’s A Way

The living room is THE place to generate stand out, so inject eye popping colour with British Wool – offset primary shades against clashing acid brights for the ultimate in wool factor! This trend is best combined with one solid shade of colour so choose carpet from Ulster that is hardwearing yet soft and luxurious underfoot or add a focal point to a plain sofa with vibrant wool tapestry cushions in delicious shades of colour made with Elizabeth Bradley tapestry kits.
