This timeless winter essential is knitted from natural, undyed British wool, produced as part of a hyper-localised supply chain.

Our British Wool Beanie goes from field to the finished product within 300 miles, which is a huge environmental saving compared to wool sourced from New Zealand or Australia, where the supply chain can often exceed 17,000 miles.

The British wool is farmed in Lancashire, England, harvested from pedigree Bluefaced Leicester sheep - a breed famed for the fine staple and soft quality of their wool. Historically, British wool has been viewed as too coarse for clothing and is often discarded. We are now reclaiming this waste product as part of a push for less waste and greater circularity.

To preserve the wool’s low impact credentials the raw wool yarn has been left undyed in its natural ecru colour, with no toxic chemicals used to clean or dye the wool at any point.

About the brand

Riley Studio was founded to make conscious consumerism the norm. The brand’s three pillars include environmental innovation, creating value from waste and designing without gender. All of these are set out in order to rethink today’s industry with the environment in mind.

Every garment is created from waste and organic materials with circularity in mind. All Riley Studio products come with a lifetime repair guarantee, to ensure that they never end up going into landfill. Their gender neutral range means that items can be worn by anyone, reducing wastage and increasing the lifespan of garments. Traceability is also important throughout the production process - with much of the range produced in the UK.

“Our growing community is based on care: care for our suppliers, for our customers and, most fundamentally, for our planet.”
