Our products are well protected and ready to be gifted with no receipt or invoices in the packaging, so you can have them sent straight to the recipient's door!

Where are your blankets and scarves made?

We have spent a long time visiting mills around the world that we feel make some of the best wool, and we've built long-lasting relationships with both of our partner mills. You can read all about our wool here.

Our Recycled Wool is woven in India, the textile recycling capital of the world, where pre-loved garments are collected and woven into our super sustainable recycled wool blankets!

Our Lambswool and Cashmere blankets and scarves are woven in Inner Mongolia, where we are proud to partner with a family-run farm that still uses traditional farming methods. They cultivate the softest, best-quality wool and cashmere we've ever found.

Our Alpaca blankets and scarves are woven in Peru, the alpaca captital of the world. We use undyed and traceable Peruvian yarn, famous for its durability and warmth, is combined with 11% recycled nylon for a sumptuous bouclé texture.

What's the difference between a Blanket Scarf & a Knee Blanket?

Great question! Other than the name there is absolutely no difference! They are exactly the same product however they can be worn as either a blanket scarf or a knee blanket (pretty great for travel!) which is why you will find both listed on our website.

Why aren't they all made in Scotland?

Scottish wool tends to be a little coarse due to the harsh weather conditions, so is often used in tweeds, carpets and upholstery. Most British mills these days actually use wool from overseas such as New Zealand. After much research and travelling, we felt the best quality of lambswool and cashmere we could find came from Inner Mongolia, the best recycled wool from India and the best undyed alpaca from Peru. So we chose to make them at source, working directly with our trusted manufacturing partners. We've written a lot more about it in this blog post: Why We No Longer Manufacture in Scotland.

I can't find my family's Clan Tartan on your website- do you not carry all tartans?

Unfortunately, we cannot make all the clan tartan blankets that exist as there is a whole lot out there! Each tartan is unique and woven separately, which involves a lot of different yarn colours and loom set ups, so we are only able to sustainably produce a few carefully chosen tartan designs. However, we are always reviewing our range or bringing in seasonal patterns, so we love to hear what tartans our community is looking for. Please do drop us a line!


Wool

What are the differences in wool types?

You can read all about our wool here and we have made a handy chart that compares them with an in-depth explanation. To sum up our wool types:

Best all-rounder: Recycled Wool Blanket - Durable, soft, warm, and great value.
Best for next-to-skin softness: Lambswool Blanket - Super soft, lightweight cosy, and perfect for little ones too.
Best for the ultimate treat: Cashmere Blanket - Warmest, softest, snuggliest wool; it's like being wrapped in a luxuriously warm cloud.

What does recycled wool mean?

Recycled wool is wool which has had a previous life, maybe as a jumper or pair of socks. It's broken down and re-spun into new yarn with other mixed recycled fibres saved from landfill to give the blanket strength and increase its longevity (meaning you can love it for longer)! Recycled wool turns pre-loved into re-loved. You can read more about that on our blog: About Recycled Wool.

What is the best way to care for wool?

Each wool type needs different care. We have written a detailed guide on how to wash wool and keep it soft so you can look after every wool type, check it out here.

Which wool type is the softest?

Since we only weave with premium wool that is super fine, all of our wool types are super soft and not scratchy. But if we had to choose favourites, cashmere is the softest material ever and its texture is almost silky. Our lambswool is super soft, fluffy and light (yet insulating). Alpaca is has a lovely boucle texture, but it is not rough, it is soft, lofty and cloud-like. Recycled wool is also soft, and a bit more weighted.

What do your blankets feel like?

So, so soft. We have made this handy chart that describes the feeling of each wool type!
