Wyld Hug Basket Weave Blanket
This Wyld Hug Blanket/Throw has a delicate basket weave stitch and is the perfect size to wrap around yourself on a cool evening or have as extra warmth on your bed. It is amazingly lightweight whilst being warm and cosy.
Yep, another awesome Kiwi story! So the main material is Pihepe wool. Ok, so Pihepe who? These guys are Pitt Island Wild Sheep. And, Pitt Island (part of the Chatham Islands) is the most Southern and Eastern inhabited island in the world. Rugged sheep from a rugged place and rugged as wool.
The lovely peeps Roger and Nicki from Wyld lived on the Chathams for 17 years before relocating to Banks Peninsula on the South Island of New Zealand, bringing 8 ewes and 2 rams with them. There, they have bred and developed these guys through natural selection providing them a free and wild life. The vision then blossomed through Wyld to create unique fibres of outstanding quality by combining the wonderful diversity of nature, the backbone being easy care, ethical and organic sheep.
Made in New Zealand, organically grown and sourced, these are designed to keep you seriously warm. These woolen garments allow you to adapt to your environment in the same way the sheep's wool adapts to its environment.
