FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
1. ARE FRESH RETRO LOVE BLANKETS PRE-LOVED OR NEW?
You may be familiar with our restored second-hand blankets which are offered up throughout the week for sale, and are of course, singular items. On the website, you will find these under Restored Wool Collections.
Recently, we expanded to bring brand new blankets to the market. These are identified as New Wool Collections. We have designed and made them right here in New Zealand, remaining true to the heritage of quality and style, but with sensational new colourways.
2. WHERE ARE THEY MADE?
100% of our new collection, and most of the restored collections are made right here in New Zealand. Where a blanket is from elsewhere, we outline this clearly in the product description.
3. WHAT ARE THEY MADE OF?
All our blankets are 100% wool, with thick pure cotton edging. Each blanket has an identifying label sewn on, made of damask satin.

5. DO YOU BUY BLANKETS?
We are always looking for retro blankets to add to our collections. Please message us and we will discuss what you have, and whether it fits within our range.
6. ON SECOND THOUGHTS I WANT TO KEEP IT, BUT HAVE IT REPAIRED
We offer this service as well. We assess its state and if it is repairable, we will delight you with a new, yet strangely familiar blanket! Here is the link for this service.
7. CAN I GET LARGER SIZES OF THE NEW COLLECTION?
We are dedicated to being “NZ Made” and that means we are restricted by the maximum width the mill can produce – which is 151cm. That said, we may be able to do a custom length for you that can run long-ways for a larger bed. Please message us to enquire if this is available.
8. WHERE CAN I FIND YOU?
We do not have a physical shop, but we do attend key market events throughout the year. Message us to find out where we will be next.
Additionally, we are very active on social media where we showcase all our new releases. Check us out on Facebook and Instagram!
9. WHERE DO YOU SHIP TO?
If you live on earth, we can get it to you. For international orders, proceed to check out, and select ‘international shipping’. Based on your location and parcel weight/dimensions we will quote you the exact shipping cost and send you a separate PayPal invoice for the shipping amount.
10. WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF WOOL?
Nothing compares to wool. Wool is natural, renewable, biodegradable, sustainable, hypoallergenic, breathable, non-toxic, antimicrobial, temperature regulating, flame resistant, naturally elastic, resistant to bed bugs, absorbs air contaminants…. just to name a few!
11. WHY DOES EVERYTHING SELL SO FAST?
For our pre-loved and refurbished blankets, they sell quickly because they are one-offs, and are often gone within minutes of being uploaded to the website. It really is a case of ‘get in quick’!
