Buy British. Buy less. Buy better.

We’re one of the oldest clothing brands still manufacturing in Britain today. And since we use predominantly local, natural materials in the production of our garments, we’re already ahead in terms of sustainability. However, as one of the world’s biggest polluters, we believe the fashion industry (and its customers) have a big part to play in protecting the planet.

Traceability

We’re a small, family-run business who are passionate about being transparent in our materials and manufacturing process. This is so you can shop with confidence that we are doing everything we can to be a sustainable as possible.

Materials

Warm in winter, cool in summer, and as hardy as the sheep that wear it to begin with, wool is a wonder to work with. Each fibre has both a left and right-handed helix at its core - or, in other words, a small, super-powered spring. Bend it any which way, as many times as you like, and it will always bounce back into shape.

We care about where our wool comes from. That’s why all the wool we use in our clothing is reared and sheared right here in Britain. We’re fully licensed with British Wool - the approved provider for wool handling in the UK. And since there are more sheep breeds here than anywhere else in the world, we’re pretty spoiled for choice when it comes to choosing the best fleeces to knit with.

Merino wool is up there with the softest of the soft, so you’ll find it in the majority of our knitwear.

Just like other wools, Merino is super breathable, warm, has antibacterial properties, and is even biodegradable. This means that, unlike synthetic materials that shed fibres during washing (we’re looking at you polyester and nylon), it breaks down harmlessly in water. 

Merino comes with the added bonus of having more natural oils than other wools, so you won’t need to wash it as often. An even bigger tick in the sustainability box.

Nilo

Slowly and carefully cultivated in Egypt by the kings of cotton themselves, Nilo is an eco-friendly, fully traceable BCI cotton.

Yielded by the Better Cotton and COTTONFORLIFE Initiatives, Nilo blends GIZA 45 and GIZA 87 cotton fibres to create a material that’s one-of-a-kind (and also happens to be super soft and silky).

British Millerain & Halley Stevensons

We work with the world’s leading, UK based manufacturers and innovators in waxed cotton and weatherproofed fabrics to create our Wax Jacket collection. Our suppliers have unique technical knowledge and manufacturing experience over generations of development and innovations.

Our waxed cotton is durable, water-resistant, and has an authentic, antique finish. Think all the character of an old pair of jeans with the lived-in look of well-worn leather.

Our Dry wax jackets have all the same benefits as a classic wax jacket but with a stylish matt finish. So for those looking for something a little less traditional with all of the same perks dry wax is the way to go.

The cleaning process is similar to a wax jacket however when rewaxing we recommend a dry wax reproofing spray.

Bring together two British heavyweights and the result is bound to be something special. Made using a soft lambswool tweed from Abraham Moon & Sons and water repellent British Millerain cotton, our bonded wool is a beautiful, durable fabric that can withstand anything the great British weather throws its way.

Widely considered to be the best in the business, Abraham Moon has been crafting tweed at its Yorkshire mill since 1837. Made from 100% natural wool and woven with Northern soul, Moon fabrics have been crafted into everything from tweed coats to tartan. And according to its makers, the tweed is a material that can withstand wear and tear to last a relative lifetime.

Care & Rewaxing

We can control everything about the garment production from start to finish and we have a close working relationship with the team at our Manchester based factory.

Wool

All our jumpers, cardigans and other knitted items are made from 100% wool. This makes them super snug but also means that you need to take extra care to keep them looking their best.

Washing and drying

We advise that you hand wash in cool water using a wool-specific, natural detergent like Shear Delight. Once you’ve washed your garment, lay it flat to dry so that it doesn’t lose its shape.

Any heat can cause the wool fibres to shrink and your knitwear to become misshapen.

De-pilling

Pilling happens when parts of your jumper rub together during wear and create fuzzy bobbles on the surface of the wool.

Because pilling is so complex, nobody can guarantee that it won’t happen, but there are a number of ways to prevent it. We recommend using battery-operated pill and lint removal devices, also known as de-pillers or fabric shavers. Or you could use a de-pilling comb or gently remove the pills with your hands.

Wax Jackets

Rewaxing

We recommend using Mallin & Son - the world’s busiest wax cotton workshop and the best in the business when it comes to rewaxing.

Care

All of our jackets are made from waxed cotton in order to make them shower-proof and weather resistant. Wax jackets are notoriously difficult to clean so please take care when looking after yours. We do not recommend using a washing machine or dry cleaning your jacket.

Antique wax

This classic cotton waxed material is used in jackets such as the Bexley and the Clifton Wax Jacket.

Start by brushing off any loose dry dirt with a soft brush or a damp sponge. If there are any particularly stubborn areas, use a soft piece of cloth, cool/warm water and a gentle natural detergent. Do not use a degreasing soap, such as dish soap.

After cleaning your jacket, it may need rewaxing. Browse our Halley Stevenson's reproofing range here.

Dry wax

Our dry wax jackets, like our Fell jacket and Ladies Oversized Parka, have the same benefits as a classic wax jacket but with a slightly matte finish.

To clean your jacket, we recommend following the same process as you would with our antique wax jackets. However, when it comes to rewaxing, use a dry wax spray such as Nikwax’s cotton-proof spray.

Projects & Promise

We’re big believers in keeping manufacturing miles to a minimum, supporting British farmers and factory workers, and doing everything we can to curb our carbon footprint. Sustainability is a big part of what we do at Peregrine, but we know there’s always more to be done.

Becoming the UK’s first regenerative knitwear brand, grown and made in the UK

We’re committed to supporting more nature-friendly farming. That’s why we’ll be transitioning 100% of our British wool sourcing to regenerative farming methods by 2026.
