Yellow Windmill Block Throw


by Atlantic Blankets


Inspired by the iconic beauty of a classic beach windmill, this grey and striking yellow wool blanket is the perfect finishing touch to your room. Designed by husband and wife team, Gemma and Alastair, in Cornwall and woven in Britain from 100% British Wool. The gorgeous colours are complemented by a cream stripe and fringe detailing.

I’ve never seen anything like this throw with its unique weave and the lovely colour combination! I’ve got one planned for my living room when we finish redecorating to add a splash of colour to the grey and blue theme.

Size: 150 x 183cm.

Care instructions: Dry clean or cold wash at 30 degrees. Must dry flat. Do not tumble dry.


Atlantic Blankets is husband and wife team Gemma and Alastair who live in Perranporth, Cornwall. The idea was born in 2007 when in need of a bright and soft blanket that possessed magical curative powers of cosiness to comfort their little girl who had chicken pox. They couldn’t find anything, so they created them.

Inspired by their Cornish surroundings and the amazing coastline of the British Isles, they create beautiful woven treats in a range of lovely bright and natural colours. Their collection mixes nautical contemporary design and colour, with traditional weaving methods and natural fabrics. I was drawn to their beautiful ice-cream stripe wool throw initially and then found it hard not to want everything in the collection! I also love the personal touch of the handpicked shells on each one that their children have collected from the nearby beaches! I met Alistair to touch and feel the blankets in person to be sure that they were what I was after for These Two Hands as I try to meet all the makers that I feature and they were perfect!
