A closer look at Thurston

Thurston’s our double-sided Merino wool throw. Not only does it give you two colours (deep, dark navy Ink and a natural oatmeal shade) but two textures too: the darker side is loftier and slightly fluffier, whereas the lighter is smoother. You can use it to subtly change the feel of a space depending on which side is showing more.

The textile

Merino sheep are known for their soft, curly fleeces. The wool’s not quite as fine as cashmere or lambswool, making Thurston slightly thicker than our Hadleigh throw, but it’s still finer than the chunky pure new sheep’s wool used for Cotswold. And just like all wool, it’s insulating, strong and naturally hypoallergenic.

The weave

The weave used for Thurston is known as a ‘warp-weft-faced construction’. In short, it means that, if you use different colours or textures for the weft (the threads that run from left to right on the loom) and the warp (the ones that run from top to bottom), you’ll get one colour/texture on one side, and another when you turn it over. Neither side has a pattern though.

Where it’s made

Thurston’s created by our family-run partner mill in Delph, a village on the border of Lancashire and Yorkshire – two counties that were known historically for weaving (our mill’s been around since 1863). They start with the fleeces straight from the farm, before washing, spinning, dyeing, weaving and finishing their wool textiles themselves.

The size

This is one of our larger throws – big enough to fit comfortably over a king-sized bed or across a sofa, and for the whole family to snuggle under. Because it’s not too thick, you can also fold it up to drape over the arm of a chair.
