Harrison Spinks, has added a rare breed of sheep to its flock, In addition to the Texel, Suffolk and Zwartble flocks already on the bed maker’s 300-acre farm, a flock of 23 Wensleydale sheep has been introduced, to allow Harrison Spinks to utilise their high-quality wool as a filling in its luxury mattresses.

Originating from North Yorkshire, Wensleydale sheep numbers have declined dramatically over the years; by purchasing its new flock, Harrison Spinks hopes to promote the versatility of the breed’s wool, which has previously been used for knitting yarn, clothing and upholstery. The use of the breed’s wool in its mattresses also reiterates Harrison Spinks’ dedication to utilising unique blends of natural, sustainable materials to offer consumers the best possible night’s sleep.

Speaking about the new addition to the farm, Richard Essery, managing director of Harrison Spinks’ components division, said: “As a Yorkshire-based company we feel passionate about championing our local heritage and what better way to do that than by our own pedigree flock of Wensleydale sheep’s wool, that traditionally hale from North Yorkshire, as fillings for our mattresses.
