M&S supports Wool Week for AW11
Sep '11
M&S announces its second year of support for Wool Week 2011, with a selection of stylish wool items across womenswear, menswear, kidswear and interiors.

With British Heritage at the top of the style stakes for Autumn/Winter, wool plays a key part in autumn looks. M&S uses more wool than any other retailer, and with a rich history in wool manufacturing and innovation, M&S stays committed to working with one of fashion's most sustainable and versatile fabrics.

Wool can be found across a variety of womenswear products two favourite pieces are; This beautiful wool cape, a perfect investment coat to take you through this transitional period and layer up for the colder winter months.

Tartan too is big trend for AW11 and this is a great way to introduce it into your wardrobe, the tartan mini can be worn with tights or leggings.

Wool is a key textile in menswear this season with the resurgence of the British Heritage trend. Our beautiful worsted wool is woven exclusively for us by the Abraham Moon mill in Leeds – one of the last British mills to still dye, spin and weave their own yarn. Team heritage worsted wool blazers with a classic top coat, and finish with a traditional flat-cap for the must-have look for the cooler months.

Wool is one of nature's most comfortable fabrics, and with its make-up of super strong fibres it can withstand plenty of wear, making it the perfect option for kids this Autumn. Choose a perfect pink duffle coat or a cute fair isle knit for a look that is both stylish and practical.

This season, wool is not only found on fabulous fashions but in the interiors ranges too! From bedding to the latest on-trend upholstery.

The Fjord Chair and Conran exclusive Bainbridge Armchair are statement pieces and have the feel of modern classics.
