This Wyld Organic NZ Wool Lacy Blanket Throw is a gorgeous example of natural beauty.

It's made from 50% organic Pihepe wool, 25% organic Bohepe wool, and 25% wild possum fur.  

You've probably never heard of Pihepe and Bohepe wool, and there is a full explanation here >>>   But essentially, you've got this lovely smooth wool from an offshore island sheep, plus very fine wool from a specially bred sheep, plus ultra warm and smooth possum fur, and what that gives you is a super soft and super warm blanket.

Those sheep are grown organically.  No tailing, no mulesing, no injections, no antibiotics, no drenching, no dipping.  They roam the hills of Banks Peninsula, and are shorn once a year in summer.

And you get to wear the natural colour of the Pihepe sheep.  No dyes, no changing what nature created.

Wool naturally traps air in its fibres, hence why it is one of the warmest fibres in the world.  The lacy pattern in the blanket means even more air is trapped, making the throw even warmer.  The wool from these sheep is even more special, though, because it is quite smooth and very light.  So you get the lightest of blankets, yet it is still very warm.  

Perfect for wrapping yourself up in when you get home after a cold day.  

Or gift it to that special baby, to be coddled in their cot or stroller or car seat.  The light weight is perfect for babies, and the insulating nature of the wool means they won't get cold and they also won't get too hot.

And if you are searching for the perfect gift for the environmentally conscious friend, this is indeed perfect.

Hi, Received my lovely slippers today and I am very happy love the colour. My current NZ slippers are just worn out after many years.
I am more than satisfied as I know my new pair will last a long time, I have bought my slippers from NZ for many years as I'm assured they will last as I wear them all the time inside and out.
