Super soft and luxurious throws made by Silkeborg of Denmark, entirely from pure new wool.
The black and grey wools are exclusive to the famed Gotland sheep of Sweden. The white wools come from sheep from the fjords of Norway.
Silkeborg’s specialty is in the painstaking hand sorting of wools by colour – almost a lost art. Their skilled craftspeople then spin the sorted natural wools into strong, pliable yarns. This makes plaid designs possible without the use of dyes or chemicals.
The yarns are woven into beautiful, timeless designs. These throws are generously sized for maximum comfort and are extremely soft and cozy.
Size: 56” x 86” (+ 3” fringe) 140cm x 220 cm (+ 8cm fringe)
Colours: combinations of greys and cream
Care: Wool is easier to take care of then you may think. Unless you actually get it soiled and dirty, it stays clean on its own! It doesn’t absorb smells and is naturally water repellent. You can spot clean by rinsing the area in lukewarm water. When necessary, hand wash or machine wash on gentle cycle with a mild detergent using cold water. Gently squeeze out the water, then roll it in a towel and press out excess water. Lay flat or hang to dry.
