For cool summer nights or as an extra winter layer, our Cumbrian Summer Blanket will keep you warm in all seasons.
Generously sized blankets, averaging 168cm in width by 250cm in length.
With its striking two-sided geometric design, our Cumbrian Summer Blanket is a colourful delight. Use it as an extra ‘sheet’ in Winter or as a lightweight layer on cool summer nights. In the north of England we often need a blanket year-round. This one will brighten up your day in every season.
Following the popularity of our first edition we have reproduced these blankets in a new edition of ten striking colours and at a significantly larger size.
We produce very limited runs of our blankets, often no more than 6-10 of each colour. The limit is due to the amount of wool I collect each year from farms in and around Sedbergh in the Yorkshire Dales. I have the wool spun and dyed at mills in West Yorkshire and the Scottish Borders. My blankets are woven at a small weaving mill in Langholm, Scotland.
100% British wool - a soft but hardwearing blend of British Bluefaced Leicester and Hebridean wools.
Recommended care: gentle handwash in lukewarm water with eco-friendly soap. Wrap in a towel to dry then hang over a rail. A warm iron will remove any creases. These blankets can also be washed in a machine but it must be a gentle wool cycle at no more than 30C.
