The Lerwick Throw - Black
The most recent addition to the Real Shetland Natural Collection, The Lerwick throw is a beautiful worsted and woollen blanket that offers a super light yet sturdy weave and excellent warmth.
Our worsted yarn gives this piece a superior soft handle which given its large size, means there is ample room for sharing snuggles with someone special either indoors on a comfy chair or outside in the garden.
The Real Shetland Wool we use in our products is fully traceable, from pasture to product!

As always with our Natural Collection, we have made this product as eco-friendly as possible; our yarns are all made from genuine Real Shetland Wool (that is, wool sourced exclusively from the Shetland Islands), undyed natural shades and production is kept local to reduce our carbon footprint. The Shetland Wool Industry is reportedly 'carbon neutral' so by buying genuine RSW, you are not just helping support a small traditional crofting community but the environment too.
Please beware of phony Shetland products - there is only a small amount of genuine RSW and we work with the largest buyer/supplier of the fibre. Many products are called 'Shetland' without containing any Shetland wool, the name often being used to describe a yarn style rather than wool type. Many of the 'Shetland' throws on the market are NOT real Shetland!
Real Shetland Wool and the Three Sheep Logo are your way of knowing you're buying genuine RSW and supporting the Shetland crofting community. Always look out for the Three Sheep Logo and check the label!
