The Wool & Wax Edition Picnic Blanket - Country Checks
A call for the outdoor is also a call to protect our environment. The Wool & Wax Edition, our new picnic blanket design is layered with a waxed cotton waterproof backing.
Waxed cotton was initially created for the Tea Clippers in the 15th century when sailors had to fight natural elements on the high seas. Re-designed in the British Highlands for the country sport of sailing, this luxury material has been part of the British lifestyle for generations.
We source organic cotton approved by the OCS (the Organic Cotton Standard is the International textile standard that assists in proving the agricultural origin of cotton) and by the Better Cotton Initiative.
With a tighter weaving and a higher density of wool, the blanket is made to last. Our wool is sourced from Britain & New Zealand and is mulesing-free.
With a longer strap (to sling across the shoulder leaving you hands free) than our classic pure new wool picnic blanket, each rug is large enough and ideal for several adults, but rolls up into an easy-to-carry bundle. The slim elegant strap ads a touch of style to the overall look. The soft top layer made of pure new wool is gloriously comfortable to sit on and protected from the dampness in the ground by the waxed cotton layer.
The Wool & Wax Edition is our most eco-friendly picnic blanket so far and a gorgeous smart picnic accessory with beautiful British Heritage.
The blanket, waxed cotton backing and leather straps are made in the UK.
