Guest Collection: recycled cashmere throws by Turtle Doves
We are delighted to bring you a special new Guest Collection at The British Blanket Company by our friends Turtle Doves. These luxurious recycled cashmere blankets are crafted from a gorgeous blend of 50% recycled cashmere and 50% new merino wool. Available in four soft and beautiful colours, these throws will be available in our shop as a Guest Collection from 7th August, for a limited time only.
These throws are made from re-spun cashmere jumper offcuts blended with soft new merino wool, resulting in a remarkable combination of elegance and sustainability. Read on to find out why a recycled cashmere and merino wool throw should be top of your list.
Sustainable Choices Matter
Opting for recycled cashmere is a meaningful step towards environmental preservation. Cashmere goat farming can have ecological consequences if the goats graze fragile areas of land too heavily. By choosing recycled cashmere, you'll contribute to reducing the demand for new cashmere production, making a positive impact on the planet.
A Symphony of Colours and Texture
Our collection of recycled cashmere and merino wool throws comes in four subtle and timeless colourways, each with an elegant marled finish. Whether you seek to add sophistication to your living room or create a cosy sanctuary in your bedroom, these blankets are a perfect complement to any setting. The thoughtful selection of colours ensures these throws will become timeless staples in your home for years to come.
Eco-Chic and Wallet-Friendly
A special feature of our Guest Collection lies in the use of recycled cashmere. While many of us aspire to the luxurious feel of cashmere, it often comes with a hefty price tag. By choosing our recycled cashmere blankets, you can experience the sumptuous softness of this prized fibre at a more budget-friendly price.
Reasons to Buy a Cashmere Blanket
You probably already know that cashmere blankets are luxurious and soft, but here are some additional reasons to invest in a recycled cashmere throw:
- By choosing to buy recycled cashmere blankets, you reduce the demand for new cashmere production, making a positive impact on our planet.
- A recycled cashmere and merino wool blend blanket has all the warmth of wool, combined with the lightness of cashmere. Ideal in spring and summer when evenings are chilly, but you don't want the weight of a thick wool blanket.
- Pure 100% cashmere blankets come with a very high price tag, so a blanket made from recycled cashmere blended with merino wool is a perfect way to experience luxury at a more affordable price.
- Each recycled cashmere blanket is lovingly crafted in the UK, supporting the rich tradition of British craftsmanship and keeping precious skills alive.
- With four versatile and timeless colourways, our cashmere blend blankets seamlessly complement various interior styles, making them versatile and decorative additions to your home.
How to Wash a Cashmere Blanket
As with any delicate fibre, proper care is essential to maintain the beauty of your cashmere blanket. We recommend dry cleaning only to preserve its softness and appearance over time. Be sure to inform your dry cleaner about the cashmere composition of your blanket to ensure they use the appropriate cleaning methods.
Blankets Made in the UK with Love
The British Blanket Company proudly supports local artisans and manufacturers. These exquisite recycled cashmere blankets are crafted right here in the UK, embodying the rich tradition of British craftsmanship and quality.
How are wool textiles recycled?
Our guest collection of recycled cashmere throws is created by Turtle Doves and Iinouiio. Iinouiio, an acronym for "it is not over until it is over," is a pioneering force in the world of closed-loop textile recycling. Their passionate commitment to continuing the long history of wool recycling in Yorkshire has enabled them to forge a bright and sustainable future for the industry. To craft these throws, offcuts of cashmere jumpers left from making Turtle Doves gloves are shredded, blended with new merino wool and re-spun into yarn. The recycled yarn is then woven into beautiful herringbone blankets.
