This beautiful blanket represents more than just a warm & cozy blanket! It is made from natural, high-quality fibres by a network of women in the Karoo.These pure eco cotton blankets are hand-knitted in a selection of nature’s colours with Persian bobbles. Simply styled, light and comfortable. The yarns are all produced by South African farmers, locally spun and dyed in small dye-lots.
These women form part of the ''Blankets from Africa" community project which was established in aid of supporting women in the area where the level of unemployment had reached alarming levels, with little apparent prospect of improvement. Their handiwork, represented by a simple pattern, needles and pure wool, is the catalyst for them to generate an income, enjoy a community spirit of working in a group and experience feelings of achievement and of being valued.
