Luxurious and Rustic Chunky Wool Knit Blanket
These rustic, elegant yet soft and fluffy chunky blankets are hand knit in Canada. They are made of 100% lightly handspun wool in natural animal colors from Canadian Sheep. They are excellent for the end of the bed or large throw blanket on the couch. They are exceptionally warm and cozy as wool is good at retaining heat but also allows for air flow. It comes in 5 neutral colors - cream, light grey, medium grey, dark grey and brown. The size varies slightly as the wool has some variations according to the sheep. I am offering 5 different stitches - the moss stitch, seed stitch, garter stitch, rib stitch and double rib stitch. The light grey blanket is in the garter stitch and is a 4.5 lb blanket and is approximately 4 x 5.5' laying flat.
Care. Soak with a mild detergent in the washing machine — do not agitate. Drain, and spin out excess water and lay flat to dry. I have also washed them in the wool cycle and they have come out lovely. Or dry clean. Hand groom every so often to remove pilling and tuck in any loose fibers.
Wool is nature’s miracle fiber – it’s warm, water resistant, breathable and biodegradeable.
