SHOP THE COLLECTION
Escorial Wool is the world’s rarest and most distinctive natural fibre. Lightweight, warm and breathable, yet resilient and providing natural stretch to the wearer, it is famed for being softer to touch than its more expensive counterpart, cashmere. Once exclusively reserved for the 15th century Spanish royal family, during the Napoleonic wars the Escorial flocks all but disappeared. However, thanks to a Scottish woman, Eliza Furlong the breed of famed sheep was saved. In 1829 Eliza took 120 Escorial sheep to Australia to establish a flock in the New World. In 1987 the Radford family bought 40 lambs from Australia and took them to New Zealand where today, the family own over 40,000 sheep.
Between Joshua Ellis and Lock & Co. there is joint 593-year history of manufacturing excellence.
With the unique luxurious properties of Escorial wool, this capsule collection brings beautiful, hand crafted product.
Comprising of three iconic cap designs – the traditional flat, an eight piece Tremelo and a classic baseball, there’s something stylish for everyone.
