Slate - Woven Fine Merino Throw
Everyone Needs A Warm Hug. St Albans’ wonderful creations have been aptly described by many of their adoring fans as a “warm hug”. That soft, soothing embrace which warms both body and soul.
Since 1951, three generations of the Gough Family have been crafting the finest natural fiber Blankets & Throws in the World. The Cape Woolamai Family first discovered St Albans in 2014, while on a scouting expedition to Australia in search of new treasures to bring back to our Friends across America. For decades our home had been adorned with some of the best of the UK & Ireland. All very wonderful. When we began living with our St Albans Throws, we knew we had found the best of the best.
Slate interweaves a Natural base with Steel Gray ribbing to bring new life to the classic Herringbone design in a way which adds depth and texture to any room. Slate makes a statement of timeless strength, in a throw with the warmth and softness of this perfectly weighted fine Merino throw which is perfect for relaxing on the couch, recliner, or deck chair; as a footer on the bed; or as an extra layer of warmth without weight as you sleep. And the timeless pattern can blend into whatever décor you may choose over the decades ahead.
Crafted from the finest pure Australian Merino Wool from which you can weave an heirloom quality piece, the St Albans collection of fine Merino throws have warmed hearts, and toes, for 70 years. Light, simple, elastic, and extremely soft, St Albans Merino Throws offer a level of luxurious comfort in all conditions, at any time of the year. Warmer than Cotton, and still very breathable, fine Merino Wool is equally suitable for a chilly Winter day, or a cool Summer night.
Recent shortages in the caliber of Merino wool fine enough to meet St Alban’s standards have driven prices to a point where St Albans has put Byron and the rest of the Merino family back into the vault for a while. The eventual retail price would simply be higher than St Albans believes appropriate. And they will not lower their quality standards.
As for this wonderful throw, and the other Merino’s in our collection … Act quickly, they are the last available for possibly quite some time. We should know, we emptied the St Albans warehouse when the announcement was made, and we are offering the remaining stocks to our Friends at prices below the recommended retail price.
Quality. Beauty. Heritage. The 3 common threads woven into every St Albans creation.
Crafted for Life
- ◆ Quality — St Albans works with only the finest natural fibers, responsibly sourced from the best producers in Australia, and around the World. The craftsmen of St Albans are equipped with the finest looms in the World, with which to perform their magic. Each St Albans creation is inspected twice: once before leaving the factory, and again on a full-size light table before being accepted into the Distribution Center.
- ◆ Beauty — With an eye towards integrating fashion into items which are all too often created solely for form and function, the St Albans design team travels the world, keeping their finger on the pulse of what is on trend, as well as to which designs remain timeless classics.
- ◆ Heritage — For 70 years, St Albans enduring commitment to excellence has been on display in homes around the world. It was this commitment to excellence which brought the 2nd generation to America to study at North Carolina State University for its world-renowned Textiles program. Knowledge which has helped elevate St Albans to a position of World leadership. Today, we are proud to bring the product of this heritage of excellence back to America.
