Warmer than a cuppa, lighter than a trifle, and toastier that Mr. Darcy's ripostes, this delightfully cozy wool blanket is quintessentially British. Woven in the UK from naturally fine and soft Merino sheepswool, this classic meadow checked throw blanket is perfect for cozying up in the drawing room after a day spent trudging the moors or, you know, curling up with a book on the couch. The 60" x 72" size makes a (very) generous lap blanket and we love to use it as an additional layer at the foot of smaller beds (especially ideal if one bed-partner sleeps hot and the other cold).
Take Care: British wool has long been treasured for its warmth + durability. The Roman emperors who invaded the islands shortly after 55 BC cherished British woolens, saying it was "so fine it was comparable with a spider's web". They didn't put it in the dryer and neither should you. Spot clean, put in the washing machine on cold with a wool-suitable detergent, don't wring, and lay flat or hang to dry. If your blanket feels stiff after drying, you can brush it to reinvigorate the nap.
