Made from a blend of cashmere and merino wool, this blanket is a Garner heirloom!
I’m not usually one for bright colours, but I do love retro patterns. I managed to find enough Cashmerino shades to create a muted colour scheme.

i love this blanket! it’s amazing, the colours make it look both bright and warm/wintery. how did you come to this colour distribution? is there any repetition in it? did you make a scheme in advance or worked randomly and put the hexagons together nicely after making them?
Thank you Astrid! I just bought a range of colours I liked and tried to make sure I had a good mix of light and dark – and that’s about as far as my planning went. I joined the hexagons as I went and my only rule was to try and avoid too many of the same colours next to eachother. I think there are a few repeating colour schemes but there are so many combinations based on the colours I bought 🙂
