A closer look at Thornton

Made from pure merino lambswool, Thornton is one of our lighter, finer throws, so it’s perfect for beds where it’ll add warmth but not weight, or for a more refined look than a sheep’s wool throw. It features a simple colour block design in deep but soft shades of green, with a short, raw-edge fringe (as opposed to the usual tassels) on the ends.

Why merino lambswool?

Lambswool is the name given to the fleece from a sheep’s first shearing, and it’s naturally much finer and softer than any other. Merino wool comes from a particular breed of sheep, prized for their very strong and silky fleeces. So naturally, the lambswool of merino sheep is some of the very best for creating a smooth, supple and light blanket. And, like all wool, it’s also biodegradable, insulating and hypoallergenic.

In the making

Thornton’s created by our family-run partner mill in Delph, a village which sits on the border of Lancashire and Yorkshire. They start with the fleeces straight from the farm, before washing, spinning, dyeing, weaving and finishing their wool textiles themselves.

The weave

Most of this throw is woven in two colours of yarn: white on the warp (from top to bottom) and deep green on the weft (left to right). It creates a tiny chequerboard design which, from a distance, gives this panel a mottled – or heathered – appearance. The end section, for contrast, is more solidly dark green on the front and paler on the back. It’s our softer, subtler take on colour blocking.
