Extra Large Wool Throw - 100% Scandinavian Wool - Extra Large, 240cm x 260cm
We first spotted these wonderful blankets/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 have tried to offer various sizes to suit different needs - these are the largest and make wonderful throws for the sofa or bed.These throws are all in very subtle and neutral grey / cream combinations so they will slot seamlessly into most surroundings.... WE LOVE THEM.
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.
(Silkeborg wool throws are also available in large throw size 140x240cm and small knee-blanket size 85x130cm.)
Care: Wool is easier to take care of than you may think. Unless you actually get it soiled and dirty, it stays clean on its own! It doesn’t absorb smells and is naturally water repellent. You can spot clean by rinsing the area in lukewarm water. When necessary, it is possible to wash these blankets on a delicate wool cycle with a special wool detergent but we would recommend dry cleaning.
