Key Feature: Vintage superstar
Ok so I'm letting my favourites show. This one is verrrrry hard not to add to my own collection but I love it is going to find a wool loving home!
Somewhere around 1940/50's blanket - that in itself makes my heart soar!
Deep chocolate, emerald green, butter cream, mid turquoise and then holy moley magenta pink! How did they come up with this??!!!
The design itself is SO sophisticated it almost shadows like a pleat with varying width stripes and checks.
Medium weight wool and soft to touch. Even thickness and weave throughout.
Classic travel rug size 134cm x 150cm. Fringing on the top and bottom edges.
Original makers label but with no info apart from All Wool, Made in New Zealand. I believe this to be an early (and rare) Onehunga Woollen Mills blanket.
A Fresh Retro Love, Restore to Relove label has been added to one corner.
There are eight patches of all small sizes on this blanket.
Perfect for the couch, around the fire pit or cosy in a reading nook. This blanket would be amazing in a farmhouse style home, a mobile home, in the back of a vintage car, french country styled interior... the list goes on!
