For individuals look for something a little more special William Halstead Fabrics finest mohair qualities feature some of the worlds most luxurious fibres in the warp, including 100% cashmere.
The company is one of just a handful of manufacturers left in the UK who, with its highly skilled, dedicated and experienced workforce, still weave every metre of our production on their own Dornier looms in the mill.
This “in house” weaving enables them to ensure the highest standard of quality control is applied at every stage of the production process, from receipt of raw material through to final inspection.
Their weaving shed is equipped with modern and technically high speed rapier Dornier weaving machines which are linked directly to a computer controlled production system,
