Farewell Sheepy!!

Last Friday we said farewell and Happy Retirement to one of our long serving overlookers Mick Steele - affectionately known as Sheepy. Mick has worked for us for the last 15 years and has been a great source of knowledge and help for all of us at Pennine. Mick has also been a key player in the training of the next generation of Overlookers at Pennine ensuring all his 50 years of textile experience are passed on. Thanks a lot Mick and all the best for a long and happy retirement.

WOW - Super230S

Gone into loom today with the first piece of Super 230s - one of the finest yarns we have ever woven - and certainly one of the most valuable. Refreshing that we are the only weaver our customer would trust to weave a cloth of this value and prestige, certainly a test of our QC systems and people - all in a days work at Pennine!

ASWGA VISIT

We had a very informative visit from Simon Cameron, President of The Australian Superfine Wool Growers earlier this week. Fascinating to discuss the issues we both face in supplying  the luxury fabric market pipeline. Despite the distance some are pretty similar! The key points of the discussion were that we are both heavily reliant on workforce skills and experience, and ensuring we can differentiate ourselves sufficiently to continue to earn sufficient returns to invest in our futures. Also brings home just how long, and unique, the wool pipeline is from fibre to garment.
