Natural colour merino blankets
Natural merino wool has not been put through any dying process. It has been washed and put into thick roving ready to knit with. This is as natural as you can get.
Just choose your colour and size.
Lap:- this will cover from our waist down to your feet. suitable for sitting watching the tv with.
Sofa:- this will cover your whole body approx!
Lap can also be a single bed runner. Sofa can also be a double/king bed runner for the same price but do pop me an email after ordering to let me know because I have to adjust my knitting pattern slightly. email@example.com
Why is it so expensive??
Merino wool is the finest wool in the world. Its a natural material that originates from the merino sheep.
Merino has a high level of warmth, breathability and softness against the skin, particulary when compared to other types of wool.
Its also antibacterial and hypoallergenic too.
An arm knitted blanket will natural have large stitches but did you know that these bigger stitchig actualy trap air in and keeps you warmer than a blanket with out holes.
Every blanket with be lightly felted before leaving HQ. this just helps reduce the shedding.
The nature of the fibre means that it does shed but because it is 100% wool it will also felt over time with use and movement. This is normal and to be expected. Acrylic blankets will shed a lot because acrylic is not a natural fibre and dosent hold together like wool does.
You will not be able to wash your blanket but as wool naturally repells dirt just mop up any spills and give it a shake out now and then to remove any dust and particles.
This is a long term investment not a throw away item. They are to be loved and cuddled as much as possible.
