Romney Marsh Wools was born through a firm belief that they wanted to raise awareness of all the benefit that British wool can bring.

The Romney Sheep have been in the family for at least six generations, possibly more.The Romney or the Kent sheep is a "longwool" sheep which was recognised as a breed in England by 1800.

Their British knitting wool is naturally hypoallergenic. It’s resistant to mould growth, and it inhibits dust mites which cause most of the allergic reactions. This knitting wool is ideal if you suffer from asthma or allergies.

The softness of wool is measured in microns looking at a single fibre strand.Romney fleeces are considered to be one of the finer British Breeds at around 32 microns.
