Salmon Corrán Throw Blanket
The Corrán Irish wool throw exudes the tradition of Irish wool weaving down through the ages with a heritage chevron/herringbone design, or corrán in Irish. All Cushendale's Irish wool yarn is dyed, carded, spun and woven at the weaver's own mill in Graignamanagh. The handle of this exceptionally rare Irish yarn creates a real and tactile connection to a heritage craft.

A bit about Cushendale
Cushendale is one of only two remaining woollen mills in Ireland traditionally crafting exceptionally rare textiles using Irish wool. The locally sourced fleece is from the protected 'Galway' sheep and is dyed, carded, spun and woven at their historic mill, creating a range of truly unique Irish textiles of authentic composition, provenance and craftsmanship. It is a great privilege and joy to continue to work with indigenous Irish wool, from fleece to fabric.
