This beautiful throw is made from 100% extra soft merino wool. The high microfiber count of our wool makes our throw one of the softest blankets available on the market today. The wool is pre-washed prior to knitting to ensure that you get the finest finish on your blanket. It has a repeating pattern of alternating cable knits and a heart-shaped motif, drawing inspiration from the knit styles of the Aran Islands in the west of Ireland. The heart motif symbolizes love, while the cable symbolizes the ropes of Aran fishermen, who make their living from the sea. Measuring 67 inches long by 49 inches wide, our throw is the perfect size to add an extra layer to your sofa or bed on colder days and nights.
