Fishermen’s Gansey extreme knit cable throw roving blanket, super chunky knit throw hand knitted on giant broomstick needles with 70s 21micron super soft 100% pure Merino wool roving from non-mulesed British Falkland Island Merino sheep raised with organic methods.

Ample grasslands, low-stocking densities, and nearly nonexistent disease pressure has made organic methods the default approach of Falkland’s ranchers. In the Falklands, there is no need for sheep dipping, where the animals are literally bathed in potent parasiticides, nor is it necessary to carry out the controversial practice of mulesing to avoid the fly (and maggot) infestations which are a huge problem in warmer climates. Animal welfare groups are actively campaigning against mulesing and neither practice is permitted under organic standards.

The Falkland Islands Merino wool is currently only available in ecru, or natural white. I can knit to order in many other colours which are also non-mulesed though not organic so please don’t hesitate to send a custom request.

Knitted from super soft unspun roving this is a luxury item which deserves loving care. Roving blankets will shed a little due to their unspun nature.

Professional Dry Clean only.
