I know that blankets don’t really make sense as we go into summer – although I have to admit, I still cover myself with a throw every night while we’re watching telly! – but I really couldn’t resist this psychedelic mohair throw! Aren’t those colours just fabulous? It’s not super large, being what Cape Mohair (the makers) refer to as a ‘knee blanket’, but it would work fine at the end of a single bed, or on the back of an armchair (which is where we permanently have a blanket ready and waiting!). It’s in very good condition, not being particularly old – Cape Mohair have been going since 1991 though, so I suppose in theory it could be nearly 30 years old. It does have a leather label, which the company don’t seem to use anymore, and the mohair content is quite a bit higher than the blankets they’re producing today, so perhaps it is one of their older pieces? It’s definitely been well looked after though – when I bought it was packed away in a special bag – clearly a much loved blankie!
