World of Wool….

Here at The Lounging Hound, we’re WILD about WOOL!

It’s 100% natural, renewable and biodegradable. It’s dirt resistant and odour repellent. It keeps you cool in summer and warm in winter. It’s comfortable and it’s beautiful! For more information about wool, head to the Woolmark Company website.

Good for Pets….

The Lounging Hound owner Natalie comments. “I think some people are put off wool because they think of it as a fabric that is hard to clean and uncomfortable for pets. But that’s not normally the case nowadays. It’s actually really easy to care for – mostly machine washable, super-soft, durable and great for pets as it keeps them warm or cool depending on the season”.

Our Suppliers….

The Lounging Hound uses pure wool products supplied by two of the oldest wool mills in Britain. AW Hainsworth has been weaving wool since 1783 and has the widest looms left in the UK. Abraham Moon, established in 1837 and one of the UK’s last remaining vertical wool mills, produces the fabric for our gorgeous Multispot Cushions.

Quirky Products….

If you’re after something different, how about this fabulous Fox Terrier from Cox & Cox, beautifully handmade from 100% felted wool.

Wool Week….

A whole two weeks dedicated to the wonders of wool! Wool Week takes place every year in October with a varied programme of events, exhibitions, activities and initiatives designed to educate, inspire and promote the benefits of wool. More info from The Campaign For Wool.

Knit It Out….

And finally, don’t forget about knitting itself! Once you get the hang of it, knitting has amazing health benefits – aiding relaxation and lowering blood pressure. This brilliant book by Debbie Humphreys at Redhound For Dogs has some gorgeous patterns to get your hound feeling cosy and looking cool.
