- OUR FABRICS
We weave our blankets alongside our Milnsbridge cloth, but unlike our bags they’re 100% wool and they’ve been washed and brushed for a much softer, cosier feel.
Woven from weighty, chunky wool these blankets are thick and heavy, perfect for cosy nights in, even in the coldest of Yorkshire winters. To take your cosiness to the next level have a look at our hot water bottles too – wrapped in their own mini Milnsbridge blanket and finished with a hand-bound loop detail.
Our blankets are made from a 100% wool version of our Milnsbridge cloth which is woven locally from yarns that we source from Yorkshire based mills and merchants. The yarns are mostly left overs from large commercial orders and as such can be very odd, small quantities. These are very difficult to use on a commercial scale, but perfect for small makers like our-selves.

Caring for your blanket –
We have found a steamy iron on a wool setting removes any creases with ease and gives the blankets a little refresh if needed.
If your blanket requires washing, we would recommend a gentle hand wash with some wool friendly soap in luke-warm water. Gently squeeze out any excess water, don’t ring or twist the blanket as this could damage the yarns. Leave to air dry flat on a towel and once dry give the blanket a light pressing with a steamy iron on a wool setting.
