With its striking geometric design and double-faced colouring, our Cumbrian Summer Blanket is a real delight. You can use it as an extra ‘sheet’ in Winter or as a lightweight layer on cool summer nights. In the north of England we often need a blanket year-round, this one will brighten up your day in every season.
Our first edition sold very quickly and the second edition is going just as fast. There are currently four colours available
- Grass (a lovely bright fresh green)
- Ocean (a soft blue – think North Atlantic)
- Moss (a soft green), and
- Bracken (a deep red)
A new edition is being woven and will be available later in the summer (June/July 2018), with all eight colours shown below, plus a couple of unusual new ones. Back ordering will be available once we have confirmation of delivery date.
The yarn used to weave these blankets is our own 100% British wool blend of Bluefaced Leicester and Hebridean wools, overdyed to create wonderfully textured colours. I call this yarn Cumbrian Tweed. The result is a soft yet hard-wearing blanket which is easy to wash and, given the right care, will last for years.
- approx size: 158cm x 200cm plus short fringe
- recommended care: gentle handwash in lukewarm water with eco-friendly soap. Wrap in a towel to dry then hang over a rail. A warm iron will remove any creases. Can be machine washed at 30C in a gentle wool cycle then hung to dry.
