“These items have been specially woven to make thick, cosy blankets, they feature our exclusively adapted patterns and are made in merino lambswool with a blanket stitch hem.
Oscha throws have been specially woven to make thick, cosy blankets, they feature our exclusively adapted patterns and are made in organic cotton and lambswool with a blanket stitch hem. The throws are perfect for use on a single bed, a runner for a double bed or laid decoratively over an armchair, ready to warm you up on chilly evenings.
As always they have been lovingly woven in Great Britain from the finest yarns and finished without the use of any nasties. Lambswool is naturally anti-bacterial, and it is good for allergy sufferers as it repels dustmites. It wicks moisture and is temperature regulating. Lamsbwool throws can be handwashed or put in the machine on a wool wash setting so they are easy to care for. Throws measure approx 190cm x 135cm.”

The pattern name Alto has been derived from Altocumulus, a meteorologic name for certain types of clouds. Alto means high and cumulus means heaped. The pattern features pairs of two clouds evenly spaced on the fabric, thus creating a repetitive pattern of Japanese style clouds. Released after the pattern ‘Strato‘, ‘Alto’ features more spaced clouds.
As referred to in the description, white clouds drifting by in a blue sky – ‘drift’ features white clouds in a blue sky.
