Generous in size they’re large enough to throw over a double bed. Perfect for a cold winter’s night.


Approx 150x200cm plus fringe.


Howgill blankets are 100% British made, from British wool. The yarn is produced from fleece sourced from Yorkshire Dales sheep, scoured and spun in Yorkshire before being sent to the Scottish Borders where it is dyed to my specification and then woven into blankets.


All this happens within 100 miles of my base in Sedbergh at the foot of the Howgill Fells.
