Snuggle into one of our cosy thick Shetland wool throws, perfect for working from home! The colours in this throw remind me of spring with daffodils, pale blue skies with white wispy clouds and green leaf buds.
Limited edition: 250
Size: 154cm x 194cm including the rolled and pearled fringes
Our throws are woven at a mill in Yorkshire and all made from 100% British Shetland grade wool which comes from the British Wool Council, owned by 35,000 sheep farmers that collects, grades, markets and sells British wool.
We only use 100% British wool, it’s something we’ve learnt to be careful about as we discovered that being labelled ‘British wool’ doesn’t mean that it’s 100% British, it can include wool from New Zealand etc too which has many more transport miles associated with it!
Wool is both renewable and biodegradable as each year sheep lose one fleece and grow another, with the old one either used for wool or returned to the soil, where it decomposes releasing valuable nutrients into the ground.
Wool is a long lasting fibre, it can be bent back on themselves over 20,000 times without breaking, meaning your woollen throw will last well and enjoy a long life. Science is struggling to replicate this in a man-made fibre!
The protective waxy coating on knitting wool fibres make wool products resistant to staining and they also pick up less dust, as knitting wool is naturally anti-static. Wool is naturally hypoallergenic as it’s resistant to mould growth, and inhibits dust mites which cause most of the allergic reactions.
2nd class postage and packing to anywhere in the UK is included and a free gift tag too.
Your throw will be safely packed in British sourced tissue paper and cardboard box, so that opening the box will be a treat, revealing the colourful tissue protecting your throw.
We recommend dry cleaning or gentle spot cleaning with a mild detergent and warm water if need be.
