Whanganui Stripe Blanket
Our weaver Monica grew up in Whanganui, New Zealand. These blankets are reminiscent of the weft stripe blankets made at the famous “Whanganui Woollen Mills” in the 70`s; those blankets are still on family beds in New Zealand today. It was also a not uncommon design here in Scotland around the same time.
Soft and luxurious, yet strong and hardwearing, the blanket comes in 4 variations: Hebridean Dark Brown with Blue, Hebridean Dark Brown with Yellow, Shetland White with Blue and Shetland White with Yellow. The blue was dyed with woad and the yellow with our home-grown weld over a rhubarb mordant.
