The Aran blanket is a beautifully luxurious pure wool blanket with bobble detail on each end. Ideal for use on a double, queen or king size bed the Aran blanket will make bed time a pleasure. Cuddle up in the winter or enjoy an afternoon snooze with this gorgeous, soft wool blanket.
Each blanket is hand knitted in the Eastern Cape, South Africa by Blankets from Africa. The organization is a female-owned and operated community project, supporting women in rural areas by creating a safe working environment. A protective work place was established for rural knitters from the Karoo that have difficulty finding work in their community due to disabilities and high levels of unemployment. Blankets from Africa aim to provide sustainable employment in these communities and to create a positive change for generations to come. The provision of a simple pattern, needles and pure wool is the catalyst for these ladies to generate an income, enjoy a community spirit of working in a group and experience feelings of achievement and of being valued.
