Our Cumbrian Summer Blanket is a real delight with its striking geometric design and double-faced colouring. 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. This lovely blanket has proved to be an enduring favourite. It is woven from a mix of Hebridean and Bluefaced Leicester wools which together create a soft but hard-wearing fabric.
We have a handful of older and/or slightly damaged and/or shorter than expected blankets available at a discounted rate. Older stock has been returned from other retailers. Damaged stock might have a small pinhole or a slightly wonky edge. Shorter blankets are new and in great condition but are, quite simply, shorter than their siblings.
Please note: I cannot accept returns for these pieces. They are sold as described. Further photos can be emailed upon request.
