Soft, large, woolen throw with colors reminiscent of the colors of the bog: dark brown peat and brightly purple heather flowers. The whole piece is entirely made by hand, handwoven and handbrushed. It is generously large and perfect for cuddling up on the sofa with a book and a cup of something warm to drink.
Peat is manufactured using traditional craft skills handed down through generations from weaver to weaver. This is a slow process and because each throw is made entirely by hand, small variations will occur making every piece unique. It is woven in pure wool and because it is so large (120 cm x 210 cm), even a very long person can get his toes under it when lying on the couch, without being cold on the chest.
Like Birch, Rock, Rust and Moss, Peat has an irregular pattern reminding of organic surfaces like bark, stone or roots. Read more about this series of blankets inspired Norwegian nature in this blog post.
