A wonderful family heirloom blanket knit in five traditional Aran knitting panels.
Each panel is a unique repository of Aran stitches inspired by Edel's time spent working with the Sekules Family at Kilkeel Knitting Mills in County Down.
The 100% pure new wool tweed is in the unique blend Sliabh Liag also designed by Edel in 2014 and made exclusively for her since then at the local Donegal Mills.
The artistry of the knitting on this piece will accent any contemporary interior, whether it drapes on a chair back or hangs on a wall.

How to care for me
Maybe you’ve never owned one of me before?
Here’s my experience so far;
I’d prefer not to be stuck in that dark press but when I must go in there just roll me up loosely first.
I don’t need much washing although my Italian cousins say that I’m a gorgeous natural thing and washing improves me!
When washing make it no higher than 30 degrees and please only a wool recommended detergent. Squeeze all the water out after handwashing me, even roll me up in a towel to do this! Dry me flat on my back.
Keep direct sunlight away from my cables!
Edel and many of her long-term clients machine wash my friends. Hopefully they never put them in the drum at higher than 30 degrees or with nasty biological stuff!!!! The horror.
I’m terrified of the tumble dryer, please never do that to me.
Through Summer if you don’t need me (I hope you will), store me in an airtight zip bag please and I’ll get a rest with no disruption. I hope to spend a lifetime with you, but if you want to give me to a friend or send me to a charity store for a break that’s OK.
My wool is so healthy to wear and antibacterial, plus you’ll be living off the compliments.
