At Howl we specialise in journeying skills, the Bushcraft we practice and teach is that of the traveler. There is a wonderful simplicity that comes from taking a trip in the outdoors, a pragmatism gleaned from necessity. We draw from this experience in the field to teach a set of skills and knowledge based in expedience and realism, skills that actually get used while outdoors. We provide an insight into the Natural world, opening up a vast array of natural resources and knowledge to help you travel with less reliance on the contents of your rucksack: it’s what you carry in your mind that matters.

 

 We teach these practical skills in a friendly and open way, our hope being to enable you to make your adventures into the Great Outdoors memorable and enjoyable. We'll help you cultivate a positive attitude, a confidence in yourself, and a connection with the natural world through which you travel.

We promote the utmost respect for the environment, the ability to pass unnoticed through the woods brings with it a deeper understanding of the wilderness, and our part in it. It is this philosophy which forms the very core of our work.

The simplest of garments, a square bandana has been worn by voyageurs, sailors, scouts, woodsmen around the world a principle piece of their outfit. A constant companion of many an outdoorsperson, the bandana is aa useful and versatile as it is stylish!

Available in a Distressed Olive, with subtle variances in the colour over the precise weave it blends in perfectly with the natural tones of the outdoors.

Available also in an Autumn Beech Brown, we went to a good deal of effort to get that perfect balance of red and brown that Beech leaves in October achieve so easily. Again we allow the dying process to develop a subtle change in hue across the fabric to create that natural variance.

"I spent months looking the perfect fabric for these bandanas. I had some very specific requirements as I always have a bandana in my rucksack or around my neck as they're particularly versatile items. I wanted it to be tougher than the typical shemagh fabric, as I'm often using the bandana to lift hot pans from the fire, making impromptu water filters and carrying foraged items in them. I also carry these garments as emergency wound dressings, slings and towels so they had to be highly absorbent. I tested a vast array of fabrics in the search for this combination of properties, and happened upon a company in the UK supplying a cotton/nettle blend fabric by accident. I couldn't believe my luck! I'd known the German army made uniforms from nettle fibre in wartime, and that those uniforms had been durable but I wasn't expecting the fabric I received: a lightweight and tough material that settled after a week into a soft and flowing fabric that ticked all my boxes.

Nettle fibre is naturally highly resistant to odor, mildew, mould and bacteria making it ideal for a neck scarf or towel. In using it as a towel it also needed to be fast drying, a feature of an open weave without being so open as to weaken the fabric. It also needs to be easily cleaned in the field, nettle fibre is naturally stain resistant and along with cotton can be boiled in a billy can when camping to clean and sterilse the fabric, not something that can be done with cheaper polycotton shemaghs."
