There’s nothing like a wool blanket to keep you warm and comfortable whenever the temperature drops. Wool is the warmest fabric you can find and the fact that it’s natural comes with many benefits: it has moisture-wicking properties, excellent temperature regulation and it also naturally repels bacteria. This lovely Aran knit blanket is made from a Merino wool blend, so there's no need to worry about a potential allergic reaction to some unknown compound. It is a fine, lightweight wool and it has the additional benefits of being very soft and pleasant to the touch. This Aran Cable Knit Irish Blanket in Merino Wool Blend would make a very fine addition to your home as a comforter. It would also make a wonderful gift for someone special who will appreciate the craftsmanship behind it. The cable design symbolizes the ropes of the fishermen of the Aran Islands. The design is full of charm and it reminds you of the beautiful history of the Aran knit.
