KNOCKANDO DOBCROSS PURE NEW WOOL BLANKET GREY STRIPE
This luxurious, limited edition 100% pure new wool blanket, from Knockando Woolmill in the Scottish Highlands, is very special indeed. Each piece is woven on the mill’s historic 1899 Dobcross loom, known to be the last working loom of its kind in Europe. The loom has survived two world wars, as well as a flood resulting in the machine being washed into the burn. Celebrating its 120th birthday in 2019, the loom has recently been restored and has begun production once again. A truly remarkable piece of engineering. Woven to a generous size with fringing to each end, the Dobcross blanket is the perfect investment piece, or luxury gift.
Dimensions: L 185 cm (plus 16 cm fringe), W 145 cm. Materials: 100% pure new wool. With presentation box, tissue and information about the historic Scottish mill.
