Founded in 1837 and with roots in apparel, Abraham Moon are one of the last remaining
vertical woollen mills in Great Britain, with a reputation for consistent quality and innovative design.
Abraham Moon has a fascinating history, from supplying fabric for a growing Leeds market throughout the 1800's to supplying the major fashion houses of modern times, this rich tapestry all comes together to create quite a story over the past 180 years.
Guiseley, Yorkshire is home to their fully vertical mill, which creates all of their luxury woollen upholsteries. They control all production processes in-house, dyeing and blending raw wool fibres, spinning the melange yarns, warping, weaving and finishing the fabrics.
Well-known to be strong and resilient, wool fibre can be bent 20,000 times without breaking and still have the power to recover; it will however naturally biodegrade when the time comes.
Wool offers several levels of unique comfort to an interior environment. Its superior performance, in comparison to man-made fibres, saves money as furnishings and carpets will not need replacing as quickly. As well as providing a soft and luxurious feeling to furnishings and floorings, being a naturally occurring fibre it has so many other amazing benefits when used in home or public space interior design.
Wool is resistant to bacteria, mould and mildew that can trigger allergic reactions in people. Wool also has microscopic pores that respond effectively to changes in humidity making it unfavourable for the growth and breeding of the house dust mite whose allergens are one of the triggers for asthma attacks.
Abraham Moon's wool has excellent dye-holding properties meaning woollen fabrics and floor coverings are available in every shade, pattern and texture. All of which combine to offer a stunning interior design.
Durable with long-lasting appearance – their wool is like a spring, it has natural crimp that allows it to return to its natural shape. Its complex coiled structure gives it great resilience against becoming flat and hard. Wool upholstery can also withstand perpetual use whilst retaining colour and form, making it a great fabric to use on dining chairs or bar stools.
