The Cushen family has been producing the highest quality Irish textiles since 1778 and their latest offering is a real testament to that heritage. The Kilkenny throw is made from the fleece of local ‘Galway’ sheep, blended with lambswool so make it wonderfully soft to the touch. Every step of the process is undertaken in the mill in Gragnamanagh in Co. Kilkenny where the raw fleece is carded, spun, dyed, designed, woven and finished.

These fresh, bright, colours are inspired by the surrounding landscape contrasting plain undyed wool with striped flecks of contrasting colour, the fabric has a brushed finish and an incorporated fringe.

Materials and Care:

Measuring 135cm x 90cm it is half the size of the large throw and is perfect for throwing over your knee on the sofa. This blanket should only be dry cleaned. Spot cleaning with cold water and mild detergent suds is possible if carried out by dabbing the fabric i.e. not rubbing the fabric.

If you like this...

This throw is also available in a larger size, with the same bright colour options.

Sustainability:

One of only two vertical mills left in Ireland, Cushendale was established in the 18th century. Situated in Graiguenamanagh , a town that is long associated with wool and textiles, the Cushen family have continued the tradition and techniques of their ancestors. As a material, wool is 100% natural, renewable and biodegradable. The fully traceable Irish wool begins with specially selected farmers from Galway to Wexford, their lambswool yarn from an English heritage spinning mill and the Mohair yarn comes from one supplier in Italy. All production takes place under the one roof, using small batch dyeing and production methods. The cornerstone of Cushendale’s ethos is lifelong pieces, created by generations of their family, to be enjoyed for generations by yours.
