A closer look at Eira

Our Eira throw might be part of our Christmas collection, but with its muted palette of grey and cream, it’s a design you could happily leave out all through winter. In the style of a traditional Welsh blanket, and made using British wool that gives it a slightly thicker, hardier feel than our other throws, it’ll lend your space a down-to-earth look.

A sense of history

Double-cloth weaves (like the one we’ve used to make Eira), where the finished textile is two-sided and the pattern is reversed on the other side, have been used all over the world for centuries to create hard-wearing fabrics. They’re especially synonymous with Wales though, as is Eira’s pattern – a contemporary take on the St David’s cross design you’ll often spot on Welsh blankets.

From British wool…

There are so many reasons to love wool, and to choose to include it in your home. It’s naturally breathable and hypoallergenic – it can even help make your home’s air quality better. It’s also incredibly strong, and can last up to five times longer than other fibres. And, when it does come to the end of its life (decades – if not longer – later), it’s easily recyclable and biodegradable.

…to British making

Even though Eira’s based on Welsh designs, we chose to work with our partner mill in Bristol to create it. They’re pattern experts, and helped us interpret the traditional weave in a modern way. They’re also behind the limited-edition cushions in our autumn collection, so it made sense to turn to them for Eira too.

A styling tip or two

There’s a matching cushion to pair with this throw, but for a cosy, country look that layers different textures, you could also try combining it with our Tussock sheepskin cushion. Size-wise, Eira is one of our larger throws – big enough to fit comfortably over a king bed or across a sofa, but not so large that you can’t fold it over the back of a chair.
