100% wool blanket Uitto from Lapuan Kankurit
Do you like the Scandinavian lifestyle? Then a wool blanket from the Finnish brand Lapuan Kankurit is definitely something for you. Uitto means 'floating wood' in Finnish. This was the inspiration for the design of Reeta Ek, the textile designer from Helsinki who works with Lapuan Kankurit and others.
And of course wood plus other natural materials and colors fit naturally into an interior in Scandinavian style.
So the blanket has the beautiful abstract pattern 'Uitto', which you see on both sides. On one side in green with white and on the other side the same pattern, but in contrasting colours. The two sided pattern is a typical feature of Lapuan Kankurit.
This blanket of 100% pure wool has a size of 130 x 180 cm. This allows you to use it as a living plaid; over the couch or crawl under it in your lazy chair.
A wool blanket keeps you warm in winter, cool in summer.
- Maybe you didn't know yet that pure wool keeps you cool in summer. Wool ventilates and absorbs moisture, so your skin stays dry and cool in summer. So feel free to wrap a woollen blanket around you on a warm day. In the evening on your terrace for example (and when it cools down the wool keeps you comfortably warm).
- Personal tip ♥: In winter, put a blanket over your duvet. It doesn't feel heavy and gives extra warmth on a cold night. Lovely!
- Wool blankets are also very easy to maintain. Let them air out once in a while, that's enough. Wool has a self-cleaning effect, is bacteria repellent and dirt-repellent. If the blanket has become very dirty, you can wash it by hand at a maximum temperature of 30°C.
