Knitted Lambswool Jade, Yellow, White Stripe Blanket
A beautifully soft and lightweight lambswool blanket. The small size is perfect as a special gift for a newborn, one which can stay with them for many years and be passed on as a family heirloom. The large size makes a super comfy blanket for the sofa to snuggle under on a cold night.
Made from two panels of 100% lambswool. Lambswool comes from the first sheering of the Merino breed of sheep, which makes it a super soft wool. The particular lambswool used here is Geelong lambswool, only a small percentage of Merino lambswool can be classified as Geelong, and it is comparable to cashmere for its warmth and luxurious softness.
Everything is handmade by me in my garden studio in Hanwell, West London. The knitting is done on my hand powered domestic knitting machine and then hand finished.
Once knitted the two panels are sewn together and then washed and gently felted to produce a denser but still lightweight fabric. Due to the nature of the washing and felting process blankets are not a perfect rectangle shape, please see imagery which shows the shape of the blanket.
Blankets come in two sizes:
Small – 73cm x 98cm*
Large – 98cm x 130cm *
*Due to the washing process of this item, sizing is approximate
All items should be hand washed in warm water. Due to the fine nature of the Geelong lambswool please take care with jewellery when wearing/using products. Pilling may occur with constant use. Pilling is not a defect but a result of friction on a soft, natural fibre such as lambswool.
