Approximately 300 recycled plastic bottles go into making just one of Weaver Green's Herringbone Blankets. They look and feel like wool, but are the perfect, practical and environmentally friendly picnic blanket or sofa throw.
Weaver Green says: "Soft, stain resistant, machine washable and great for indoor or outdoor use, our large blanket throws are perfect for pet owners, red wine lovers and beach goers, as they are mould resistant, incredibly easy to clean and hard wearing. Moths won’t eat them and dust mites won’t live in them, so they are great for allergy sufferers too."
Size approx. 230cm x 130cm.
All Weaver Green textiles and rugs are hand loomed, so some variations in colour and size can be expected.
Please note that as the recycled plastic bottle yarn looks and feels like natural wool, as with wool and natural fibres, some pilling can occur, as can some yarn snagging on our looser weaves on the blankets, throws and cushions.
Cleaning guide – hoover or shake off loose debris then either hand wash using a light detergent or cushion covers can be removed and popped in the washing machine at 30 degrees, using a non – biological washing detergent. Allow to air dry naturally. Do not dry clean or tumble dry.
