Vintage Welsh Blanket from the 1950's mid century modern

A year round essential for summer festivals, camping trips, days at the beach & Picnics. Run through your washing machine on a wool wash at the end of the summer & its ready for cold evenings by the telly or to cover your bed in retro charm

This blanket is woven in Pretty pastel shades of green, white and pink with a hint of yellow
It measures 195cm (which is 77") by 170cm (which is 66")
It has a finge down two sides which measures 10cm (4") and the other two sides are finished with a blanket stich

considering this blanket is 60 years old it is in great condition! there are no pulls in the wool or big stains there are 3 little marks on it like the one photographed but these are very small and hard to notice, I haven't washed it as it smells fine so these could be lessened with a wash, I would recommend doing this no more than twice a year, see below for more information

We have one of these blankets and it comes with us everywhere :)
my children have spent hours on it at the beach or on picnics it really is part of the family
I found this one at a vintage fair and thought i'd share it with you but i'm slowly falling in love with it so grab it quick before I decide to keep it :)

This blanket is heavy! so the postage is high sorry, if when I send it it is cheaper I will refun any difference

Wool is self cleaning & over washing removes the natural oils & those added in the manufacturing process. So don`t put them through the wash too regularly. A couple of times a year is plenty. Before & after storing is perfect.
This one can be washed quite safely in your washing machine. Using a wool wash set to 30 Degrees, not a quick wash as temperatures vary, Use a mild detergent such as Woolite & no conditioner.
