Pure Wool Cabin Blanket
Another example of traditional quality, these cabin blankets were produced in collaboration with a Canadian woollen mill established in the 1870s. Made with 100% pure virgin wool, the blankets are soft to touch, warm and hard-wearing.
Measuring 183cm x 229cm, the cabin blankets are suitable for a queen sized bed.
Pure wool blankets will last for generations when treated well. Wool blankets are are easy to maintain because dirt sits on the surface of the fibres and require very little washing. Though if necessary:
- Wash in cool water with mild soap
- Lay flat to dry and shape while still wet
- Do not put in the dryer
For every market bag purchase $5 will be donated to Lihle through Just Peoples.
