Our Hebridean Log Cabin Throws are woven from a blend of Hebridean and Shetland wools, all sourced directly from farms in Cumbria and Scotland. Log Cabin is a classic weave structure, created by changing the order of colour in both warp and weft. We have played with this classic approach to give our blankets a more contemporary look and feel.
Our blankets have been named for the people and places that have contributed to saving the Hebridean breed of sheep from extinction, developing it into the thriving and popular breed that it is today.
- Storrs – pale grey with white – celebrates the role played by Storrs Hall in Cumbria over 100 years ago in helping to save the Hebridean sheep (or St. Kilda as it was then known) from extinction
- Lindeth – a classy brown and white – is a place in Cumbria where one of the flocks which contributes wool to Laura’s Loom lives
- Kinsman – a rich, deep, peaty brown which reflects all the colours of the sheep itself – is the name of a family which keeps a flock of Hebridean sheep at Windy Hall in the English Lake District and who have contributed greatly to the collective knowledge of this breed.
- Care: Cool handwash or very gentle machine wash (wool cycle), or dry clean. Properly cared for this blanket will last a long time.
- Fibre: 100% British wool, purchased directly from small farms in Cumbria and Scotland, spun in West Yorkshire and woven in the Scottish Borders.
- Size: approx 145cm x 190cm incl. fringe
