For Autumn/Winter 2017, John Smedley celebrates the raw beauty of natural fibres in recognition of Wool Week. Wool Week is organised by The Campaign for Wool, in a global endeavour initiated by its patron, His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales, in order to raise awareness amongst consumers about the unique, natural, renewable and biodegradable benefits offered by the fibre.

John Smedley is delighted to launch ‘The Black Sheep x John Smedley’, a four piece assemblage offering a unique variation to our traditional garments in celebration of this event.

The Black Sheep represents something in all of us: a strive for individuality, a desire to be different and with this collection we’re delighted to have been able to showcase this and celebrate a beautiful natural fibre.”
– Jess McGuire-Dudley
Marketing & Design Director

The new collection has been expertly designed in an oversized cocoon shape, intended to cosily envelop the wearer during the harsh winter months, providing a nod to farmer garments of old.

Black sheep wool’s natural properties are perfect for outdoor life providing warmth, comfort, durability, strength and beauty to your seasonal wardrobe.
