Holland & Sherry’s Gostwyck: an exclusive Super 170s merino wool fabric
Since 1836 Holland & Sherry has continued to supply prestigious tailors and luxury brands with some of the finest cloths in the world. The firm is headquartered on London’s iconic Savile Row and has its distribution and purpose-built warehouse at Peebles, in the Scottish Borders.
Holland & Sherry is the only cloth merchant with exclusive rights to Gostwyck superfine Saxon merino wool.
The quality of Gostwyck merino fibre is the result of over 180 years expertly selecting merino sheep that produce finer, softer and whiter wool.
Today the producers of Gostwyck wool produce merino which is finer than most cashmere, and has been scientifically tested as the most comfortable natural fibre. This makes Gostwyck merino completely itch free.
The Gostwyck farm is owned and managed by the fifth generation of the original purchaser, Henry Dangar. Dangar bought the farm in the New England tablelands of New South Wales, Australia in 1834 from another pioneer, Edward Gostwyck Cory, hence the name. In 1854, Dangar went to Saxony in Germany and bought 28 rams. These rams were escorted to Australia in the care of two Saxon shepherds who stayed on and made a new life in Australia.
Today, the luxurious Super 170s merino wool is sourced from the RWS certified Gostwyck farm offering full traceability from sheep to cloth. On the farm, a responsible approach to grazing increases sustainability, soil health, pasture and water quality. Not only does this benefit the environment but ensures healthy, happy sheep all year round; and with healthy, happy sheep comes good quality wool.
