The Big Blanket
This was the most popular Wrapt creation at the recent Auckland Fair by far – our sample blanket was stroked and caressed so often I thought it might be worn through! We decided that ‘squishy’ was the word of the day, as the term used most often to describe the Big Blanket.
A giant, super chunky blanket made from 100% New Zealand wool – this project has been floating through my mind since I started weaving with wool roving to create cushion covers. Wool roving is un-spun wool fleece – the state that wool is prior to the process of spinning. It looks a lot like fairy floss and makes me smile just as much.
The roving is a heap of fun to weave with – so soft and airy. The weaving grows quickly and it is so rewarding when it comes off the loom. The blanket is woven in traditional panels and then joined using a decorative stitch.
The Big Blanket is available in the following sizes:
- Lap Rug (100x100cm) (39×39 inches)
- Throw Rug (150x150cm) (59×59 inches)
- Single Bed (100x200cm) (39×79 inches)
- Double Bed (150x200cm) (59×79 inches)
- Queen Bed (200x200cm) (79×79 inches)
- Kind Bed (250x200cm) (98×79 inches)
Our sample blanket shown here has natural cream roving with a matching cream warp, and a contrasting charcoal edge stitch and joining stitch. There is almost an unlimited number of colour combinations available, as each order is bespoke – made just for you in the colours and size that you want.
