PRE-ORDER Climate Stripes Blanket

Regular price$440.00
Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

This blanket measures 1.8m in length and is 1.4m wide.  It charts 173 years of global temperature data in each repeat, which goes across the throw and up and down the throw on a asymmetrical basis.  Indeed it has been designed to last at least 173 years....

In 173 years we hope they will say that this blanket was made and helped make the change happen.  If this comes to pass then we are sure they will say they are so grateful for those who were brave enough, willing to speak up and supported to make it happen!

More info on the mission can be found here on our Climate Stripes Collection page.

The fabric has been made with wool that is homegrown on the Shetland Isles, spun and dyed by Jamiesons of Shetland on the island, woven by us on our ancient looms on the mainland Highlands and then the fabric is stabilised and washed by Schofields Dyers & Finishers in the Scottish Borders.

When the fabric is returned to us, we make these history making and future saving Collection items for you to be proud custodians of!

An Amazing Treasure

Whenever I want something of perfection I go to Prickly Thistle. I have never been disappointed.
The blanket I recently purchased was no exception. Perfect weave, perfect colors, perfect packaging…. Just a whole lot of love.
