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.

    This totally beats any synthetic product. You have to know that its cold in Scotland so these manufacturers know how to keep you warm and comfortable in style!

    I have the pink and purple throw. The colors are rich and beautiful. The weave is a bit fuzzy so it is a warmer throw than the Bothy, which I also own. I would highly recommend either one. Thank you, Sierra Trading Post, for carrying products from Johnston's of Elgin!

    I bought this for myself while watching tv or movies and my father -in-law who was visiting liked it so much that I bought 3 more !! I gifted one to him and have the rest on both floors of the house.

    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 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.

    A best buy of all best finds at STP. Pattern is so attractive for the dark green/lime/pink version. And this is surprisingly so warm for keeping toasty in a chilly, older home. Also, appreciate it is 'natural' wool and not a man-made fiber. Brings a feel of comfort and back to nature.

    I brought this to a gift exchange where everyone had to bring a $50 gift and you can "steal" gifts once they are opened. Of 40 gifts, it was the most stolen:)

    This throw is beautiful. The colors are perfect. The fabric is soft. Purchasing as a Christmas gift for someone who likes wool and lives in a cold climate. So impressed that it is made in the Scottish highlands.

    I love my new blanket. I look forward to when I get to surround myself with this pure luxury in a word filled with man made fibers. This is pure new wool and I was amazed how soft this is since it is shetland wool. I ended up buying this one right after I ordered the lambs wool blanket. Johnson's has a rich history of making the finest wool blankets and I am glad I get to enjoy a Scottish product. Thanks sierratradingpost for stocking their products. I consider this blanket to be a heirloom blanket.

    We have a Johnstons of Elgin blanket in every room thanks to the great prices offered by STP. The Shetland wool and Lambswool have a silker feel than the recycled wool but we like snuggling up in all of them. I have given these as gifts and everyone has loved them. This is a great buy and will not be disappointed.

    Since I received my throw in the mail last week, it has been an indispensable companion for the cold, late fall days. I also ordered several more wool throws from Johnstons of Elgin after receiving this one. Great gifts, quality merchandise!

    This is a beautiful and very soft throw. It is a nice size to keep yourself warm while reading or watching TV. It is lighter weight than I imagined it would be but because it so incredibly soft I will buy more of these. I didn't know wool could be so luxurious.

    I bought two to use while we watch TV in the winter. The wool is extremely soft, scratch free, and toasty. Both throws are perfectly constructed and no doubt will be treasured for many years.
