Izzy Lane ethical knitwear is a fashion label with a conscience. All of our garments are ethically made from wool that predominantly comes from our own rare breed Wensleydale and Shetland sheep. Most of which have been saved from slaughter.
Rare breed sheep
Our knitwear is made with the lustrous kemp-free fleece of the Wensleydale sheep. This is an endangered breed numbering around 1800 in the world. Our dresses skirts and jackets are made from the super-fine fleece of the rare and primitive Shetland sheep. We use this undyed in their beautiful natural colours. Our luxurious cashmere garments are made from the fibre of Scottish cashmere goats.
We know the full provenance and authenticity of each garment. This is because we have taken it from the fleece through to the garment itself.
As well as creating a cool fashion label, Izzy Lane is also a powerful platform. A platform to raise awareness and campaign for animal rights. We went on to win RSPCA Awards in 2008 and 2012. New Designer of the Year at the RE Awards and were finalists in the Observer Awards, and the Global Sustainable Luxury Awards. Our collections have been exhibited at London Fashion Week and in Paris, Milan, Berlin, Amsterdam, New York and Las Vegas and in a catwalk for the Queen !
