Wool boasts some amazing properties. It is soft yet durable, fire resistant, temperature regulating, moisture wicking and odour resistant.

When buying wool, you might see a micron count. Microns are the measurement (1 millionth of a metre) used to describe the diameter of a wool fibre. The smaller the micron count, the finer the wool fibre will be. Wool typically falls in a range of 18–40 microns. Our picnic rugs are made with robust 29 micron Merino wool, making them incredibly durable for use both indoors and outdoors.

Due to the nature of our products there may be some slight variation in sizing. 

Our picnic, travel, 29-micron wool blankets and recycle range products are designed to withstand a bit of rough and tumble however, we still recommend laundering your product with care. 

Airing outside or in a steamy bathroom is the easiest way of refreshing your product. 

For any spills or mishaps, we recommend spot cleaning. You can find more details here.

You may choose to dry clean and if so, we recommend discussing the care instructions with your chosen drycleaner before leaving your product.

We do not recommend machine washing your product, even if your machine has a delicate or hand wash cycle.

Beautiful picnic rug

We bought this beautiful and soft picnic rug to replace one which was family heirloom. The old one had been around since before my husband was born and was exactly the same pattern!!! We hope that this one will last too. Very happy with our purchase.

Lovely blanket

I am always rapt with Waverley blankets. I reckon I have heaps of the plaid throws from when you were down at the Salamanca market and also in your shop there years ago!

Brenda Bell

Very pleased with my Travel Rug, though I’m using it as a throw over on my Chaise Lounge. The beautiful colours go perfect with my surrounding decor.
I would have sent you a photo to show how lovely it looks, however I was unable to attach photos to your review.

Kind regards


How soft is your wool?

Wool is measured with microns, typically ranging from 18-40, where the smaller the number, the finer the wool. We use a robust but soft 29-micron wool for our blankets and travel throws, to ensure they have a long life keeping you warm.

Will wool pill?

Pilling is a natural part of the lifecycle of wool. Abrasion and friction are the most likely causes of pilling, but may be unavoidable over the life cycle of your natural fibre product.

The good news is that pilling is easily remedied. Simply remove the pills carefully, by hand or with a comb, for a good as new appearance.

Where are your products made?

We make everything right here at our mill in Launceston, Tasmania. From weaving, right through to cutting and finishing, our products don’t leave the mill until they’re on their way to you.
