Viima Pure New Wool Blanket Throw from Lapuan Kankurit, Sweden
A stunning grey and red pure new wool blanket or throw from Lapuan Kankurit in Finland (read all about this fantastic weaving house below).
A beautiful and practical throw all year, but with the lovely red running through the design the Viima would make an exceptionally stylish Christmas blanket - especially when mixed with our Lapuan Corona blankets and hot water bottles in the same colourway. Light and airy feel, with a wonderful textured weave, yet because it is pure wool it is extremely warm and cosy.
Everything in this range makes wonderful gifts (especially if one or two items are beautifully wrapped together - how about a throw and a coordinating hot water bottle - perfect!).
100% Pure New Wool
Size: 130x170 + fringes
Designer: Marja Rautiainen
Care: Only wash if very dirty (pure new wool is naturally dirt repellant), otherwise take textile outdoors in fresh air for a while. If necessary, hand wash at max. 30°C or dry clean. If using powder detergent, dissolve it in plenty of water. Immerse the blanket in the water and wash immediately. Squeeze gently. Do not scrub, stretch or wring out. Rinse thoroughly and squeeze out most of the water. Press the blanket between towels until half-dry and leave it to dry in an airy space. Do not tumble dry. Iron with a damp cloth, max. 150°C.
