Merino wool blankets & throws

Find the perfect merino wool blanket

Merino wool is perhaps one of the softest and most luxurious yarns out there. Naturally insulating, a merino wool blanket has been a favourite for centuries as it not only possesses the warmth of a regular yarn, it also lacks the itchiness and prickly feeling that sheep's wool can cause some people to suffer. This, and the fact that a merino wool blanket can be spun and dyed in such a vast number of ways makes it a perennial favourite for clothing and home textiles alike.

Advantages of a merino wool blanket

Not only does a merino wool throw keep you warm on a cold wintery night, it can hold up to 30% of its weight in moisture and also has the ability to absorb odor, meaning your merino blanket stays fresher for longer and requires less cleaning. And, just as it absorbs moisture quickly, it releases it rapidly too, meaning your merino wool blanket will dry quickly if you do need to wash it. 

merino throw is also incredibly durable, and is woven to stand the test of time. This means a merino wool blanket suitable for any area in your home, whether draped across your sofa or wrapped around your shoulders when sitting outdoors on a colder evening. 

merino wool throw's super fine fibres mean it lacks the itch that wool can sometimes give you, and when woven these fibres create a super soft and smooth finish for your merino blanket. As a result, a merino wool blanket is a naturally non-allergenic material and suitable for those who suffer from allergies. 

Merino blankets are also made using a 100% natural process - the only elements needed for its production are water, air and grass (and, of course, merino sheep). This natural process means that a merino wool blanket is kinder to the earth and to those who harvest and weave it, as well as making it a bio-degradable and sustainable material.
