Johnstons of Elgin Lambswool Throws


High-quality fibres are the essential ingredient in our unique, timeless designs, and with 222 years of experience behind us, we are known the world over for our incredibly fine Cashmere and Merino Wool. Our sumptuous Lambswool fibres are every bit as noteworthy, another of the super-soft yarns featuring in our rich history that remain just as relevant today.


Incredibly soft, natural Lambswool fibre has endured less exposure to the elements and requires less processing than the wool of an older animal. Lambswool’s remarkably soft handle makes it the ideal fabric for our throws, jumpers and Home Interiors fabrics. Its durability makes it a perfect choice for outerwear, such as our heritage-inspired coats.


Lambswool is a natural, innovative fibre, which has been utilised for its warmth and durability for centuries. The fibres of Lambswool are naturally wrinkle-resistant, so fabrics made from this material are less likely to crease. Additionally, it is known to have a natural protective layer that helps to prevent stains and bacteria.

Circularity, relating to the reduction of waste and regeneration of resources, is inherent to our business. Lambswool is the highest quality of sheep's wool, and its long-lasting nature allows us to create products with a prolonged lifespan. Wool is the most reused and recycled fibre in existence and will biodegrade naturally when it finally reaches the end of its life.


Super soft 100% Lambswool is the perfect natural fibre for our Double Face Check Throws, part of our Heritage Collection within our Throws and Blankets range. These traditional check designs feature a muted colour palette, inspired by the beautiful Scottish landscape. Lambswool is naturally hypoallergenic and retains warmth, making our stylish Lambswool Throws a practical choice.

Our men's and women's Lambswool Jumpers are enduring classic pieces that provide warmth without weight. They are ideal all year round due to the temperature regulating properties of Lambswool. Lambswool also has more elasticity than the wool of an older sheep, thus giving Lambswool products a little natural flexibility.

Incredibly soft, comfortable and durable Lambswool is as much a part of our story as our Cashmere and Merino Wool fibres. Browse our Lambswool products today and make it part of yours.
