These distinctive blankets are named for the mix of native British hill and mountain wools used in their construction, including Lleyn, Black Welsh Mountain, Castlemilk Moorit, Shetland Moorit, Hebridean, Manx Loaghtan, and Shetland silver grey, some of which are listed as rare by the Rare Breeds Survival Trust.
I have two options available:
- Crag – all the natural colours of these lovely native wools in a non-repeating series of stripes
- Scree – a subtle houndstooth check which resembles the jumbled scree on a mountain slope
Both are beautifully soft to the touch, with a short twisted fringe to finish them off.
I had the great pleasure to be very hands-on in the making of these special blankets and have written a blog post, complete with photos and videos, about how we made them.
