Samantha Holmes Alpaca Fair Isle Blanket Red

Samantha Holmes supports slow fashion, sustainable living and ethical trade.

Lovingly knitted in Peru for Samantha Holmes by an expert team of skilled artisans, this exquisite Nordic style blanket is crafted in a soft, durable alpaca and lambswool blend and boasts not only luxurious material, but also touch of humour with its update on the traditional fair isle design - spot the alpacas!

Gently felted for a snag-proof finish, the pattern is expertly reversed on the under side (no floaters like you usually get with Fair Isle knitting) and the finished product is durable, warm and very beautiful. The blanket looks most impressive draped over the sofa or at the end of the bed but is practical too and is perfect for picnics and festivals, travelling and star gazing.

This superb Fair Isle Blanket also makes an ideal gift for a new born - perfect as a cot blanket or simply for wrapping around baby.

Size: 90 x 120cm

Composition: 6 ply 40% Alpaca, 25% Lambswool, 35% Acrylic

ABOUT SAMANTHA HOLMES

Founded in 2003 in Scotland, the Samantha Holmes label is one the longest established lifestyle alpaca clothing brands in the UK. The company is still owned and run by Samantha Holmes from her home on the west coast of Scotland. Samantha found her first inspiration for luxury fabrics and traditional craftsmanship in Nepal from where she imported cashmere from a small hand weaving cooperative. But it was on discovering alpaca, that she found her niche. Samantha travelled to Peru to make contact with small producer groups, most of whom she still works with now and together they continue to produce an exclusive collections of handcrafted luxury alpaca gifts.

ALPACA PRODUCT CARE

Alpaca improves with age and Samantha Holmes products will not always feel as soft and supple when new as they will with continued wear. A cool handwash (30º) with a mild detergent such as baby shampoo is recommended. Wash for no more than 5 minutes. Rinse in lukewarm water, always pressing, not wringing the fabric. Wrap the item in a clean dry towel to absorb excess moisture. Reshape as necessary and lay flat to dry. Do not hang your wet alpaca garment as it will stretch.
