100% Beautiful…Plaid week is back!

The Wool Box is having plaid week again!

It's plaid week again...just in time for a picnic!

It’s plaid week again…just in time for a picnic!

I don’t know if I can resist, these are so beautiful. I just got back from a fabulous spinning workshop and a super mini-vacation in the Aosta Valley. We stayed in a little ski chalet built in 1850, it was amazing – the quality of the wooden paneling, the brass door handles, the hand-carved stone heating stove – and all of the blankets were gorgeous woven wool. My advice: pitch those tatty old poly-fleece throws and get something that will keep you warmer and only become more beautiful with age.

Sizes from 60″ x 70″(150cm x 18cm) to 60″ x 60″ (150cm x 170cm). Prices from 35 to 65 euro…that’s less than the cost of a good lunch out with your best friend folks…I say, get one of these instead and pack up a picnic :)! Info from The Wool Box is translated below:

Plaid week is back!

The sun is out the sky is blue; it’s time for outings, mountain jaunts and picnics in the dappled shade of woodland glades.

And, just in case the wind picks up and threatening clouds form on the horizon; tuck the food back into the basket and voilà! These luxurious and durable woolen blankets transform into a warm cover against the storm.

Use them as you wish: as durable traveling companions, for a warm cuddle on the sofa, as improvised tablecloths on which consume sandwiches and happiness, as a last-minute shawl or an emergency beach tent to keep off the summer sun (… no coincidence that the desert Tuareg dress in wool). You can use it wherever and however you wish and it’s sure to become a priceless companion both in your daily life and your exceptional adventures.

100% wool, 100% traceable, 100% short supply-chain products, 100% made in Biella, Italy, 100% beautiful.

Approximately 1 kilogram of woven fleece, at the price of yarn in skeins

Incredible isn’t it? See you at the picnic!

Made of 100% Italian, hand-sorted, Biella wool. Only the finest fibers have been used to create this throw, which reflects the autumn colors of Burcina's Pollone Park.
