Wrap up in one of these cozy blankets from Studio Donegal. These oversized throws are large enough for the bed or perfect for snuggling up on the sofa. With a lovely story and history, they are handwoven with 100% wool in Donegal, Ireland. These treasured blankets have the warmth and weight we love. You can choose from the beautiful neutral patterns or add a pop of color and pattern to your decor.
It's a great time to treat yourself or a loved one to a beautiful hand-woven blanket that will last a lifetime and beyond.
From Studio Donegal: We in Studio Donegal view the traditional craft of hand weaving as part of the intangible cultural heritage of the area. To lose an indigenous craft is to lose a part of our history, our culture, our link to our past. We are passionate about preserving the skill of hand weaving it is the only method we use in producing all our tweeds. Passing on the skills is of the utmost importance to us, and we have undertaken to train young apprentices.
Have you seen the lovely video interview with Tristan at Studio Donegal?
Studio Donegal uses moth deterrent in their old mill to protect their beautiful wool and hard work. They have intentionally chosen a type of moth ball deterrent with an odor that dissipates quickly. Upon receiving your blanket, we suggest you open it and air it out prior to snuggling up with it.
