There are, apparently more sheep in Cumbria than people & the sheep thrive out on the open fells despite the Lakeland climate. The hills are also populated with walkers, runners & Cyclists, many who also appreciate the benefits of wearing wool in all weathers. Wool does a fantastic job of regulating body temperature, dries quickly, wicks away sweat, does a much better job of insulating than cotton or synthetic and can be worn for days without getting smelly so I ideal for back packing.
As well as sheep and walkers Cumbria is also the home of EDZ who have been creating clothing & accessories for over 20 years. EDZ Mission is to produce good quality functional products that are reasonable priced. Our products can be purchased from our website, over the phone or from our Maryport outlet store and delivery is free to UK customers.
