The founders of Izzy Lane, have created a great range of British wool clothing . Izzy Lane rescue sheep from being sent to slaughter. The ones that are bought by Izzy Lane live happily ever after in their Sheep Sanctuary:

Last year the company saved 400 lucky sheep. Combining their passion for animals, great clothes and Britain, they have created a line of knitwear made of the wool from their flock of rescued sheep.

Shetland skirts and suits are made from their flock of 250 Shetland sheep. Some of the knitwear is made from the wool of Wensleydale sheep, an endangered breed, with only about 1,800 left in the world. The clothing is made locally by neighbouring craftsmen — the last worsted spinners and dyers in the Bradford area. The cloth is woven at an ancient mill in Selkirk using Victorian machinery that has been operating for over a hundred years.
