Solidwool | Hannah and Justin Floyd

Buckfastleigh, in the north of England, was once a thriving hub of the country’s wool industry but in recent decades had become quiet as the industry declined and manufacturing left. Hannah and Justin Floyd have however been trying to bring back the wool industry to the Lake District with their amazing composite material, Solidwool. The pair use the coarse wool from hill-farmed, upland Herdwick sheep, which is usually considered almost worthless, and combine it with bio-resin to create a material which is much like fibreglass but just a little woollier. Using this unique dark-grey composite which is not only interesting to look at but also environmentally friendly, Hannah and Justin have manufactured a range called the Hemsbury Collection – a chair and table which use the distinctive Solidwool material. They also work on collaborations with other brands, and hope that Solidwool will soon become a viable alternative to less sustainable plastics. Learn more about Solidwool here.
