  • Spring and Summer Trends For 2019

    The weather may be cold, but these trends will soon be hot.

    The problem with sales is that they are deliberately off season. Many clothes you find in high street sales tend to be for the next – or the last – season. This is often a great way to get rid of new stock or for a clothes retailer to try out something adventurous or unorthodox with little risk for the customer. Our sales at Hampstead Bazaar focus on both the last and next season, and so bring a wide range of products for both winter and summer. As summer’s been and gone, we’ll be focussing on the upcoming summer season, many products for which can be found on our website’s sales page. It’s not just last season’s finest summer wear we’re excited about, it’s next season’s too. Below you can find a plethora of beachwear, hats and general lightweight summer wear to take advantage of from our website.

  • Getting to Know the Wools In Your Wardrobe

    Wool is an all-encompassing, comforting addition to almost any wardrobe in the world. Everyone wants something woollen, whether that be a snuggle scarf, the thick lining of a coat or a cotton t shirt fit for the summer. Wool has been one of the most popular materials for clothing for centuries now and is multifaceted in its daily applications. At Hampstead Bazaar we pride ourselves on the wide range of wool based clothing and accessories we stock, and thought we’d give you a chance to learn a little more about the range on display. Whatever your needs, there’s plenty you can learn to improve your wool game.

    Firstly, what is wool?


    Wool is hair grown on the topcoat of animals. Animals who grow wool grow it above their undercoat, protecting against rain and other elements. Both wools are utilised for different purposes, the underlayer typically being softer and used in more luxury products. The topcoat is coarser but still often blended with its softer counterpart in many wool products. Moreover, wool in general can be blended with other materials in clothes to retain shape, elasticity and durability.

    Why go for wool?

    Alongside its comfort, wool can be used to line clothes to add insulation, as well as being flame retardant and water repellent. Wool is often great for retaining coloured dyes, ensuring that your clothes keep their colour. On top of this, wool is very environmentally friendly, being recyclable and increasingly organic in its processing.

    Lamb’s wool

    lamb's wool

    Lambs wool is utilised through regular sheep shearing and allows for a fine and soft wool, some sheep being able to grow up to thirteen kilos of wool every year. Some sheep’s wool is used in clothing due to its softness, whilst finer, more durable wool is used in carpets, rugs and other often used accessories.


    Merino Wool

    Merino wool is from a Spanish breed of sheep and is used in the highest quality sheep wool products. The reason or this is that each strand is incredibly fine, ranging from anywhere between 17 and 25 microns.


    Alpaca Wool

    Like Merino wool, alpaca wool can be as fine as 18 microns, but also sweep a broader scale, ranging up to 30 microns. A little coarser than other wools, this thick coat from the Peruvian Alpaca is an often-used wool internationally.



    Used by Hampstead Bazaar in our cashmere and lambswool scarf, cashmere is a soft goat wool from the goat species of the same name. Luxurious in feel, this indulgent wool is popular as one of the comfiest out there. Head on down to our lady’s cashmere jumper sale today!


    mohair wool

    Mohair is sheared from the Angora goat ands is often used for its distinctive frizzy look. With its undercoat mixed with its top coat, you get an array of textures in the Mohair wool products.

    Which wool is right for you?

    There are of course many other wools you can choose from, some rare and some commonplace. Each one comes with a different consistency and is therefor used in a variety of products. If you are looking for a softer wool, then cashmere is the one to go for, whilst a thicker, more durable option would be the Mohair or Alpaca wool.
