I recommend DRY CLEANING these blankets & throws, but you can WASH BY HAND in cold or cool water (no more than 30 degrees) using a delicate detergent. Move the fabric gently in the water for a couple of minutes.
RINSE with cold water and press the excess moisture out
Follow with a quick SPIN in the washing machine. Pull into shape whilst damp to straighten, then line dry on a breezy day or dry flat. Cool iron if necessary. I do not advise using a Wool Wash programme on your washing machine for blankets and throws.
... Wool can absorb 30% of its weight in water before feeling wet so you may need to use the bath for king-sized blankets!
... Leaving in water for a length of time will damage the fires, felting and shrinking the fabric.
NOTE: I have no throws in stock. I am ordering some more throws size but other blankets must be custom made to order. Once order has been placed there is no cancellation permitted. If you are unsure please call or text me on 0418684754.
Made in Wales.
This weave is a modification of the original Vintage Star design, the inspiration came from early 18th Century Shaker weaving and the fabric displays the simplicity and bold reversibility of Shaker blankets.
All these throws and blankets are finished with a simple hem so you can choose to display either side.
It is woven in Wales from 100% pure new Wool so feels very much like vintage Welsh fabrics, wool has warmth weight and breathability but is still practical and easy to care for.
Pattern repeat 22 x23cm
Limited stock immediately available but I can order other sizes with generally a 4-6 week window. Contact me if you are interested in another size.
