Our king size blankets are all iconic Welsh tapestry blankets - they are 230 x 255 cms [90 x 100 inches] (SIZE GUIDE) or 260 x 255 cms [ 102 x 100 inches](SIZE GUIDE) . Each king size blanket is large enough to cover the whole bed and drape on each side by 15 to 20 inches on a UK king size bed of 150 cms wide [60 inches]. King size blankets are available in different colours although there is a severe shortage of them at present - demand outweighs supply of these hand woven blankets.
Our Welsh tapestry blankets Collection is named ‘Hiraeth’ and nothing says Hiraeth more than an iconic Welsh tapestry blanket. Hiraeth is a Welsh concept of longing for home, which can be loosely translated as 'nostalgia', or, more commonly, 'homesickness'. Many claim 'hiraeth' is a word which cannot be translated, meaning more than solely "missing something" or "missing home."
A stunning addition to any home, traditional or contemporary. Using pure new wool on a 1930's Dobbcross loom, each step to produce the tapestry is woven by hand using the skills and processes of yesteryear. There can be between 1700 to 2500 individual warp threads that are tied on to the heddles of the loom by hand. The ‘double weave’ design produces reversible blankets that are practical, hard-wearing and genuinely warm.
