Care: how to care for your Wool product (see below)

Brief Clan History

Established in Scotland since at least the twelfth century, the clan held lands in Lanarkshire, Fife and Stirling.

One of the earliest supporters of Robert the Bruce was Osbert Forsyth, who was rewarded by the grant of lands at Sauchie, in Stirlingshire. The clan is recognised as one of the oldest in Scotland.

The origin of this name is doubtful, but it may be derived from the Gaelic Fearsithe, meaning Man of peace. A Forsyth (to use the modern spelling) was given land at Sauchie, Stirlingshire, by King Robert I, about 1306, and in 1368 a Forsyth was Constable of Stirling Castle.

This surname was not confined to the Stirling district and at an early date is found in widely separated places such as Edinburgh, Dumbarton and Inverness. In 1368 William de Fersith was a Baillie in Edinburgh.

How to wash

In the first instance we recommend dry cleaning all wool products.

If you wish wash by hand or by machine please do not wring the item, or allow the item to float free in a washing machine. when using a machine always place your product in a pillow case so that it does not tangle or loose its shape.

By hand wash gently using luke warm water and when drying taking great care to ensure that the item is placed flat on a towel for it to dry. This way the product will keep its shape and its softness, and look as new as when first bought.
Always use a recommended wool detergent ie Woolite.
