  • Description
    Incredible all-weather wool and mohair throws, designed by the Queen of Textiles herself Marjatta Metsovaara in 1954. So light, so warm, so breathable and so colorful - you will feel cozy and look fabulous wrapped in this legendary work of textile art! Slow-machine woven in South Africa with great care at an Oeko-Tex-certified factory. I am so lucky to be the first store in the USA to carry these amazing blankets! Approx 51" W x 78" L + 4" fringes. 4 colors available, more upon request: Punatulkku (red interpretation), Persikka (peach), Purpuri (potpourri), Laguuni (lagoon).

    The Finnish heritage of Metsovaara throws are known around the world! "Very early on, we decided to focus on environmentally friendly & sustainable textiles. We only use natural materials and take no shortcuts for quality. Today we seek to produce fabric on slow-speed power looms with a distinctly hand-crafted appeal. Our products are safe, environmentally friendly, and a sustainable choice. We are proud of our products and hope you have a lifetime of enjoyment!"

    "Soothing and dream soaked, you snuggle down for an afternoon nap with one of these fleecy featherweight plaids tucked around you. As you doze off your hand rests on the plaid, you stroke it. You can't help yourself, it is soft and furry - as furry as no real fur can even be. But the miracle lies in the effect these plaids have on your imagination" (Metsovaara Textile Catalog, 1960).
