This beautiful throw from Heating and Plumbing is inspired by their love of a traditional English home garden, which is a place of serenity and joy.    In the glow of the soft summer sunshine, the spread of a blanket is an invitation to be outdoors, and as we get accustomed to living our life within close proximity to our home, the back garden has become a refuge and this picnic blanket, a place of retreat and comfort.

With a soft shade of duck egg, the 100% pure new wool blanket is lined on the back with smart dark blue waterproof polyester.  The protection makes the blanket water and damp resistant, keeping you dry and making it the perfect accessory for picnics and outdoor garden living.  All our blankets come with luxurious British made leather straps, which hold the rolled-up blanket in a smart, neat, easy to carry bundle.  The leather strap is separate from the blanket for ultimate comfort.

Benefits of 100% Pure New Wool

-Due to wool’s unique properties, the blanket stays cool in the summer and warm in the winter.  This makes it perfect for outdoor use all year around.

-Wool is known to be hypoallergenic, making it resistant to bacteria, mould and mildew.  You can discover more on the British Wool Board and the Woolmark websites.

-Wool is anti-static, making it stay cleaner a lot longer from lint, dirt and dust.

-Wool has overlapping fibre structure, so dirt sits on the surface, making it easier to clean.  A good shake and it’s ready to be used again.

-Wool fibres are bouncy/spring with good elasticity.  This gives the blanket added comfort.

-Wool fibres are very colour absorbent, keeping the colours fresh and vibrant without fading.

-Wool is naturally renewable.  Fleece from sheep is an annual delight that is a renewable resource.

-Wool is naturally biodegradable.

Polyester backing:

-Water-resistant, colour-fast fabric.

-Durable polyester so it will not tear or rip easily.

-The two layers are securely bonded to prevent dirt from entering.
