Customer Robert says this Irish wool blanket is "Well worth the investment. It's a great quality Irish made wool blanket." And customer Helen calls it "the finest blanket I have ever owned." We think you'll be extremely pleased with this lambswool blanket too. You may be surprised at its lightweight feel, but it truly is the perfect blanket for year around comfort. Because lambswool is an active, natural fiber, it will trap heat when the temps are cooler but it will also wick moisture when the temps are warmer. The breathable wool essentially regulates your heat, keeping you at the right temperature. It's also a lot softer than some may think. The weave is tightly crafted so it's not scratchy. This size wool blanket is a perfect comforter for either a king size or queen size bed. At 108" L x 90" W, it's plenty big. It fits perfectly on a queen size bed with room to spare or fits a king size bed perfectly. It's a fine quality, natural fiber, lambswool cover that is not too thick or too thin. Like Goldilocks said, "it's just right!" And because it's an "Ireland blanket" the quality is unmatched. This fine wool comforter is woven by our maker-partners at Kerry Woollen Mills. They've been in the weaving business since 1760 and are a 4th generation family-owned and operated business located along the famous Ring of Kerry in Killarney, Ireland. We think you'll be thrilled with this 100% Irish wool blanket. If you are not delighted, we'll make it right. We've made Irish hospitality a way of doing business at Biddy Murphy. We want you to be an extended part of our family, thinking of us whenever you need quality Irish goods or gifts.
Heirloom Quality- Artisan Crafters
I was looking for a good quality wool blanket, which you cannot find locally, I looked. The quality is wonderful, I would call it an heirloom quality that can be passed down through the generations. The blanket is perfect, its warm on those cold nights and not heavy. I purchased the King / Queen size and it is more than generously sized, I have a King sized bed. Makes a great wedding gift.
Great blanket very breathable and warm
This is an excellent blanket. It is a medium weight blanket and with how much it breaths I can see this being comfortable even in the summer especially under a fan. It is not itchy or scratchy at all and while it may not be as soft as cashmere or super fine merino wool it is plenty soft. In fact I can see myself sleeping just fine with this blanket even without any sheets underneath. The fiber has a lot of crimp and therefor feels very fluffy. I have a queen size bed and this thing covers it perfectly. It hangs almost to the ground on all sides. There is one negative quality about this blanket though and that is the tiny pieces of red wool that is embedded in random places. Im assuming this has something to do with cross contamination when they use the same machine to weave multiple different blankets in different colors. Its not a big deal though...your eye has to look for them. Overall I would reccomemd this quality handmade Irish blanket.if you are wanting to use this as a main comforter like me and you live in a cold climate you should use a thin cotton blanket between this and your sheets. It is great for layering which is nice because a really thick tightly knit wool blanket often will be too hot to layer. It is also just satisfying to know it is made in Ireland because that is my heritage.
nice blanket but not perfect - has a couple of 'pulls' in it.
Quality & Warmth
I love the two I bought for myself so much I have given six more as gifts. I guess you'd say I put my money where my mouth is.
This is a luxurious, wonderful blanket! The weave is beautiful and the finish on the hems is lovely. It is warm but not hot, and it breathes! I love everything about it except that our queen bed is not high up off the floor and the blanket is very large for a queen so it hangs off the bed onto the floor. That's my only reason for 4 stars rather than 5. If you have one of those high beds or a king, it will probably be perfect.
