Meet The Farmers
At Hypnos, we want to create true comfort with real integrity. We’re so proud to work with dedicated British farmers who are passionate about caring for their sheep and protecting their land for future generations.
We want to be able to guarantee that the wool we use in our mattresses has been grown responsibly, the animals have been looked after and that our British farming communities are fairly rewarded for the beautiful fibre they provide. And thanks to our pioneering partnership with Red Tractor as part of The Woolkeepers initiative, we’re able to tell the story behind the wool used in our mattresses such as the ground-breaking Origins collections.
Here we meet Joss Jones, a farmer from Berwick, who provides his wool for our mattresses at Hypnos. With eight years of stock farming experience under his belt, across both the UK and New Zealand, Joss is passionate about his choice in career.
MEET DUNCAN & CATHERINE
Duncan and Catherine McLaughlin are passionate about all things wool and work hard to ensure that their sheep are looked after well. The McLaughlin family have been farming at Ballabeg in West Perthshire since 1933, with Duncan taking over the reins in 1968.
Georgie focuses solely on committing all of her efforts to breeding the best possible stock of Pedigree Poll Dorset sheep, who graze on Dorset Down land and produce excellent quick maturing lambs, as well as superior quality wool for high-end products.
"The Red Tractor Standard for wool traceability is reassuring for the consumer as they know the farmer in whatever sector has farmed to high standards, and key is animal welfare" - Georgie
