Our aim is to bring luxury 'Natural Wool Products' back into your home and garden.
Our company was established as a consequence of my nephew's birth in 2008, when he was given a beautiful family heirloom – a pure wool blanket, which had kept my siblings and I cosy and warm in the 1970s too but yet still looked brand new and since then my other nieces and nephews have used it. We began to look for wool blankets in the UK & Ireland to give as gifts to friends who were new parents so they could also one day see their grandchildren use it, just as our mother could. To our astonishment, wool blankets were very difficult to find, as the current trend seemed to be for man-made fibres (which we found that whenever babies were wrapped up in blankets made from man-made fibres they soon got sweaty and hot), whilst the wool blanket never seemed to cause this. We feel so passionate about bringing the wool baby blanket back into the home so we set out to find mills in the UK who can still produce them and from their our business has flourished.
We have named our company Lily&Kirkby - family names originating from the 1800s (also the era that one of the mills started in business). Our ancestors actually lived in the Yorkshire town where one of the mills is located, so we have kept it very much still 'in the family'. The mills employ both traditional and modern techniques from start to finish to produce our collection from the finest wools; Shetland, lambswool, mohair, natural wool, merino or alpaca.
Our collection now includes baby blankets, throws, cushions, scarves, stoles, ruanas and garden kneelers/event cushions. They all make great gifts for your friends and relatives or why not treat yourself. The 100% woollen products can be bought and used all the year round.
