100% cashmere c.750 grams (heavy weight) L 183cm x W 147cm
Our cashmere blankets are generously proportioned and intricately woven in a beautifully rich, luxuriant double-faced pure cashmere by the world’s pre-eminent fine cashmere weaver in the South West of Scotland, with a heritage that dates back to the 1800s, known in the luxury industry as head and shoulders above the rest in its commitment to producing the highest quality and most robust woven cashmere accessories in the world.
The blanket is woven in a way that allows hints of the other side to be shown through, so that there is a predominant colour, mixed in with a flecks of the other colour from the other side.
This cashmere blanket is one of a kind, with a hand feel that is truly other-worldly. It is buttery soft, the softest you will have ever felt of any woven material, with a sensation most aptly described as “melt in your hand”. Yet, it has the same insulating qualities as the most robust and thickest of blankets and, as with everything we do, crafted to last a lifetime.
With its wonderfully soft texture and voluminous size, this cashmere blanket will quickly become your favourite, cosiest stay-at-home companion; the epitome of luxury living.
As always, the undisputed first-in-class quality of this cashmere blanket comes down to the fact that the very best is used at every stage of manufacture, from the very finest fibres used, through to the painstaking traditional finishing techniques that set this cashmere blanket apart.
Chief among these techniques include:
the pummelling of the cloths for a softer hand feel using the same wooden device created by craftspeople from the weaver some 70 years ago
the use of Italian teasels to gently brush the surface of the blankets to give them the iconic soft and lustrous rippled effect, which are then dampened with mineral-rich Scottish water
the pressing of the finished blankets, using the age-old method of brown paper infused with strands of copper, which give the blankets that characteristic sheen and lustre - a rarity today
