What a month February was!
Lucas de Jong from Seven Sharp and Kathleen Green (me!) from Fresh Retro Love discus the awesomeness of New Zealand wool blankets.
What a month February was! When 2022 rolled around we weren't expecting to find ourselves sharing the Fresh Retro Love story on the telly! As you can imagine we had a lot of activity following the Seven Sharp interview which aired the 9th February. If you are a new subscriber as a result, an extra special welcome to you!
If you missed our wee moment, head on over to our Facebook page where you can watch our chat with Lucas de Jong.
Things have settled down a bit now, so we thought it was time to pop up for air and say hi and bring an update on the latest at Fresh Retro Love.
REFRESH BLANKETS: It is so wonderful that many of you have embraced our service of making your own favourite wool blankets fresh and new again. You've been keeping the couriers very busy with drop offs! A Refresh includes wash, patch repairs, blanket stitching, label repair and a complete brush on both sides. If that sounds like something you're interested in just send us an email with a photograph of your blanket so we can confirm it is the right sort that we can help with and then we will let you know where to send it! Easy as!
RETRO: Restored blankets for sale continue to be of interest. The tricky thing with these is we only ever have one of each available so they tend to go very quickly. For ease of finding them we add freshly restored blankets to the ‘Recently Added’ section of the website. You can also find it about halfway down on the front page.
BRAND NEW: If you love a splash of retro inspired colour in the softest of lambswool, check out our collections of NEW WOOL original Fresh Retro Love blankets.
After the interview we sold out of "BERRY" and "GRAPE" blankets (both will be back available early Winter) and are VERY close to selling out of "Pink Misfit!" too (not to be repeated at this stage).
This leads us into some exciting new designs in production so keep an eye here for our next release in our 80’s inspired “Quiet Riot” collection (first colour clue: anyone love PRINCE?), and also our “Adventure Awaits” travel rug series (earthy outdoorsy!).
If you sign up for our Newsletter, you will have the inside scoop on these releases have the opportunity to be amongst the first 50 blankets purchased and secure a numbered blanket.
As the evenings start to get cooler we send you lots of cosy wishes and many thanks for your all your support, comments, emails and encouragement. And an extra big thank you for taking Fresh Retro Love blankets into your homes.
Kathleen & the team Fresh Retro Love.
