Z Hinchliffe & Sons Ltd

Our ultimate aim is to produce the highest quality and most luxurious yarns available on the international market. We are able to achieve this by combining modern spinning technology with our 250 years’ experience.

Environmental Issues: As we move deeper into the 21 st century environmental issues become ever more prevalent and we are aware of this throughout the whole manufacturing process. Based in Denby Dale, Yorkshire the River Dearne runs by our factory and we use this water for dyeing and afterwards we treat the effluent and return it. Due to the latest dye house equipment, we are able to dye at lower temperatures whilst maintaining the colour fastness. We have taken many measures to reduce power consumption and now use ‘efficiency 1’ motors whilst all the lights are censored.

Sustainability/Traceability: We source our natural fibres with the main priority being animal welfare. To this end we work with only a limited number of suppliers so that we are better able to trace the origin of our fibre. We are members of certain animal care accreditation schemes and are applying for others.

Customer Base: Our yarns are sold to knitters and weavers across the globe and then onward manufactured and passed on as a finished product. These are found in luxury retailers such as Prada and Gucci etc, in mail order catalogues or online. We are stocked in many independent high quality clothing stores whilst our Lambswool is sold in many golf club shops throughout Europe and further afield.
