This 100% merino wool blanket was woven by a family-run Scottish brand established in 1797. The company first set up shop in Elgin, near the River Lossie, which at that time powered the watermills. Today, the mineral-rich water is still used to clean and soften the raw fibers. The makers select what they judge to be the best Merino sheep fibers from around the world, and have it sent to the mills. The fibers then go through a 12-step process – from dying to carding to spinning to weaving to knitting and more – before the blankets are finished.
When you first curl up with your new blanket, pilling may occur. This is not a defect, but simply small balls of tangled, loose fiber that can easily be removed by hand or a sweater comb. Dry cleaning is recommended.
Since 1797, this Scottish company has been run by just two families. It offers free tours of the mills and welcomes over 130,000 visitors each year. When the brand first set up shop in Elgin, its watermills were powered by the nearby River Lossie. Today, electric powered machinery is used, but the mineral-rich water still cleans and softens the raw fibers.
