Key Feature: Brilliant collectors blanket
Kiwi classic in cream, gold and taupe check this blanket is King Single size 180cm x 200cm.
The wool is medium to thick with a nice and even weave. Beautiful condition with fresh light tan blanket stitching top and bottom.
The highlight of this blanket is the wonderful label. Featuring the classic Pania of the Reef image from the Coronet range by Mosgiel Woollens Ltd and noteable absence of Napier Woollen Mills.
This makes the blanket very interesting to date! At first look we can look at the colours and how the wool is woven and generalise this is a 1970's blanket. However this extra information confirms it! Mosgiel Woollen Mills took over ownership of the Napier Woollen Mill in the 1960's then went into receivership in 1980 planting this blanket somewhere in the middle. And while we are talking about the label I just LOVE its oversize. 10.5cm x 8cm it is almost twice the size of a standard label. Exciting!
Seven small patch repairs have been added giving this blanket many years of use.
A gorgeous extra thick and warm blanket. An essential for every bed!
