The Celtic Heritage Throw and Bed Runner offer a modern geometric take on the traditional curved Celtic knot design, perfect for a home that wants to reference the old world while keeping an eye on the future. Knit from a super soft blend of Merino wool and acrylic, this blanket is the perfect extra layer whenever you need it because of its soft texture and breathability that is just right.
The and precise geometric and Celtic pattern knit into the blanket using contrasting white and colored yarns are inspired by ancient Gaelic artwork that has been found as far back as the bronze age. For the ancient Irish, the Celtic knot symbolized the eternal interconnectivity of life, nature, and the afterlife. The blanket, available in white/navy and white/grey colors, is also reversible with the negative image colors on the opposite side to suit the room or mood. Saol is one of the leading manufacturers of contemporary Irish knitwear, accessories, and throws.
Inspired by the traditional Irish fishermen’s sweaters first created over a century ago on the remote Aran Islands off Ireland’s west coast, Saol’s line of throws and blankets carries on the tradition of fine craftsmanship, intricate detail, and durable materials to create dramatic and lasting pieces for any room of the house when you need a little extra warmth. Available separately as a throw blanket as well as a bed runner for single, double, queen, and king beds. See above for dimensions.
