Faye Toogood Merino blanket
Faye Toogood’s new collection for Teixidors offers a playful, textural take on a traditional favourite. Each piece consists of three woven quadrilaterals of subtly differing proportions and hues, sewn together into a long patchwork with fringed edging; the contrasting yet complementary colourways– including subtle ochre, neutral cream and a rich scarlet – are achieved by a combination of natural wool tones and vegetable eco-friendly dyeing. The tactile qualities of the pieces are further enhanced with felt-like elements and Teixidors’ characteristic appliquéd cords, making each of these tripartite blankets into a domestic anthology of fabric textures.
Made from 100% ecological merino wool, this lovely and warm throw is equally at home on your bed or sofa.
