Irish Merino Wool Blankets, by Mourne Textiles


Wild woollens

Woven from distinctively dappled ‘wild’ spun yarns from Donegal, Northern Ireland, Mourne Textiles’ woollen blankets are classic in their colouring and highly characterful in texture. Every blanket is woven following a pattern originally designed in the 1950s by Mourne Textiles founder, Gerd Hay-Edie, whose innovative approach and strong aesthetic saw her design for the likes of Robin Day and Terence Conran. A wonderful example of enduring mid-century style, Mourne Textiles’ merino wool blankets celebrate Ireland’s rich weaving heritage.
