Luxurious 100% Scandinavian Wool Throw - Knee Blanket, 85x130cm
We first spotted the larger version of these throws whilst on holiday in a beautiful apartment in North Cornwall - we fell in love with them and simply had to source them for our customers. We thought we'd also like to offer different sizes to suit different needs. This smaller size is great for a knee blanket, to wrap around your shoulders on a winter's evening in front of the telly or when outside enjoying a glass of wine on one of our not-so-balmy summer evenings - also perfect for taking along to a festival, picnic or other outside event when it might just get a little chilly... so very useful! Again in very subtle and neutral grey or beige with cream combinations so they will slot seamlessly into most surroundings....
They are made from 100% Scandinavian Wool by Silkeborg Uldspinderi of Denmark. This family-owned business has long been known as the exclusive manufacturer of high quality, unique throws made from all natural Scandinavian wool, totally free from dyes and chemicals. The black and grey wools are exclusive to the famed Gotland sheep of Sweden, the white wools come from sheep from the fjords of Norway. Silkeborg’s speciality is in the painstaking hand sorting of wools by colour – almost a lost art. Their skilled craftspeople then spin the sorted natural wools into strong, pliable yarns. This makes plaid designs possible without the use of dyes or chemicals.
Benefits of wool:
Naturally moisture absorbent, wool wicks water vapour creating its own micro-climate and breathability.
Wool does not harbour dust and dust mites.
Wool is the world’s oldest renewable and sustainable resource.
Wool is hypo-allergenic, dirt resistant, and reduces noise.
Wool is inherently flame retardant/does not generate toxic gas.
Sleeping under wool increases the amount of REM sleep, promoting a more restful/satisfying sleep.
Some styles also available in Large size 140x240cm and Extra Large 220x260cm (suitable for king or superking bed).
Care: Although possible to wash these blankets on a delicate wool cycle with a special wool detergent, we would recommend dry cleaning.
