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.
We have a new selection of nine fantastic colours now in stock, ranging from pale yellow Lichen and soft pink Sandstone, through the bright hues of Sky blue and Grass green, to deep almost black Charcoal. In addition, Rust, Ocean, Damson and Moss return to the fold – all in a substantially larger size.
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: 168cm x 250cm plus short fringe (except Bracken: 158cm x 200cm)
- 100% wool sourced from Cumbria & the Yorkshire Dales (Charcoal also contains Shetland wool)
- Charcoal is a heavier blanket than the other colours
- 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.
