Incredibly light, springy and soft, our range of Emilie double-faced blankets are absolutely beautiful. They are lovely to look at, gorgeous to handle and work very well as a bedspread or a good-weight woollen blanket.
Very nicely bound on all sides with a fabric binding. Two blankets in one, with two different contrasting colours. Apart from 'off-white', the blankets all have a sandy colour reverse. These woollen blankets would work well in a country home or an apartment in the city. We love these blankets for their quality and softness.
A warm blanket at 430 gsm - great for summer on its own but super cosy for the colder months too.

Many of our customers carefully hand or machine wash their wool blankets on a cool wool setting at 30℃ using wool-approved detergent, with no spin allow to dry naturally.
Do not tumble dry.
There will always be some shrinkage after washing (usually up to around 6%)
N.B. Never use your regular laundry detergent on wool; even "gentle", or non-bio detergents usually contain bleach, which will ruin it.
Origin & Sustainability
Designed in Italy and woven in Lithuania. Pure new wool is ethically sourced, certified, and independently audited as being shorn from sheep that have not been mulesed.
Sustainable – wool is a natural and fully sustainable fibre from a renewable source. Wool is nature’s technical wonder fibre and has many inherent qualities that can't be reproduced by manmade fibres. These inherent qualities make wool the natural choice for a good night's sleep.
Comfort – wool is comfortable due to its unique spring-like fibre structure. The natural crimp offers excellent support for all, as well as relief from bed sores and numerous other medical conditions.
Micro-climate control – wool regulates your body temperature, actively keeping you warm in winter and cool in summer. Maintaining a steady temperature also leads to a more restful sleep.
Air quality – wool fibres absorb and hold on to indoor pollutants, improving the air quality around you while you sleep.
Anti-microbial – wool blankets are naturally anti-microbial due to the fibre protein composition and unique surface scale structure on which bacteria are unable to survive.
Odour control – the moisture absorbing properties of wool absorb sweat from the skin and halt the generation of odour-causing bacteria, keeping your bedding fresher for longer.
Natural flame resistance – wool is naturally flame-resistant and self-extinguishing and doesn't melt, making for safer sleep and one of the few fibres that don't need coating in artificial flame-resistant chemicals.
Dirt repellent – the antistatic nature of wool reduces the attraction of lint and dust and the microscopic surface scales prevent dirt from penetrating the fibre surface.
Asthma-friendly – dust mites are a key trigger for Asthma attacks, they cannot survive on wool making it a perfect choice for asthma sufferers.
