Johnstons of Elgin Shetland Wool Throw Blanket

Closeouts. This authentic Shetland wool throw blanket from Johnstons of Elgin utilizes traditional Scottish heather-mixture colors. Designed to replicate the original style of rugs hand woven on the islands years ago, it is a wonderful and durable reminder of how the wool industry was the mainstay of life on the windswept Shetlands.

    The blanket was very nice. The length was given in the dicription, but hard to decide if too short. This is not for tall people.

    This is really beautiful, very soft and warm. I was thinking I would give it away as a gift before I got it but now I kind of have to keep it.

    Very happy I could get it at an affordable price, this is not something I could normally afford.

    I'd give this throw blanket a 5 out of 5 rating if it was machine washable, not dry clean only.

    I got 6 of these blankets as X-mas gifts for my family. They are really soft, and not itchy like I've seen on other reviews. They are much softer than the lambswool blankets even though you would think lambswool would be softer. My favorite is the orange, grey and pink colored shetland wool blanket. This really is a great blanket at this price point.

    Very nice blanket with good weight. Good width, but a little too short.

    Very soft wool! Love the plaid colors and it's so warm! I will be buying more, they are so useful!

    I purchased more than 20 of these blankets for Christmas gifts this year. Every recipient LOVED their gift. I also kept one or two for myself !! These blankets are soft, warm and very attractive. Some of the color combinations are interesting, but they grow on you! Thank you Sierra Trading Post for offering such items at affordable prices.

    The pattern I chose had a cream background and caramel and turquoise plaid. It was a gift for a friend, and when she pulled it out of the box, I couldn't believe how perfectly the colors went with her living room decor! I like that this throw is much longer than your average throw, big enough for a serious nap. I appreciate that STP often offers these wooly throws at a great sale price, making them a bargain gift!

    Warm, soft, pretty. I bought it on sale as a gift, and it was worth every dime.

    I've purchased three of these over the years. They're great gifts, but it's hard to turn them over to the recipient when you see how well-made and attractive they are!
    They're warm, thick, and surprisingly soft...not the scratchy wool you sometimes find in cheap throws. As another reviwer said, these are heirloom blankets you'd be proud to pass along to children and family members for years to come. Very classic, yet built so well you can use them in all sorts of ways, from stadium blankets to picnic blankets to curling up with a book.
