We thought we would keep it classy with our first style post of the year. Let me introduce you to Hettie, a Warwickshire based company creating gorgeous wool products for both human and hound. For me wool is something that I save for best, especially with a mud monster like Alfie… Even though a good quality wool can take a bit of a spaniel beating, do you really want to let something so luxurious get mucky? I think not.
Hettie, Quintessentially British
Proud to be British Made, Hettie is a family run business based the heart of the Warwickshire countryside – Just a stones throw from Alfie and I, we often met for a dog walk and a natter! It all started with a love of bags and accessories. They wanted to design a countryside inspired collection, using the gorgeous fabrics of Abraham Moon. With so many fabrics to choose from the collection keeps evolving.
I really do believe that dogs are such an important part of any family, and this is the same with Hettie… They soon developed their own dog collection inspired by their own dogs Bruce and Minnie.
The Pet Collection
Hettie’s Pet Collection is one of quality, using only the finest Abraham Moon Wool they have been designed and created with sheer luxury in mind. There is a great range for you beloved hound, they have the staples such a collars, leads and harnesses. If you are looking for something a little more sophisticated, there is a selection of bow ties and flowers, perfect for when you need to dress things up a little bit.
Wool doesn’t just have to be feminine, Hettie has 5 stunning styles of wool to choose from… The Slate Oatmeal and Arncliffe Moonstone are my top picks for your manly hound.
The Jasper Dog Coat
I see Alfie in their Jasper Dog Coat and I instantly think of a chilly dog walk around a pretty Cotswold village. I’ve chosen their classic Slate Oatmeal, as it’s a classic. Funnily enough I first thought this coat was a little too elegant for Alf [sorry buddy]. But once we had it on I was proved wrong. I love it. The warm neutral tones complement his colouring perfectly. Then with the brown piping it really is the icing on the cake.
It is easy to put on, and comfortable for you dog to wear. With two velcro straps for easy fastening. I love that the belly strap goes right around, this will prevent the coat from slipping about… Handy when your dog is as active as Alfie.
Hettie Collar & Lead
I just had to go with a collar and lead! I went a little braver than my usual neutral tones or shades of green with the Arncliffe Moonstone wool. It has gorgeous maroon stripes adding that bit of excitement to the green tones. Each compliment each other so well. Add one of their dapper bow ties a pretty flower attachments and your dog will really make a statement.
Both the collar and lead are finished with Solid nickel coated fittings, adding to the ease of wear.
Now, have I tempted you to try Wool? Even though it’s not made for that muddy run over the field, it can be washed delicately, then left to dry naturally… Just in case your dog can’t resist that puddle, or lake if you are Alfie.
