Another marvellous blanket, Laurie.
Philippa, wool blends will keep a child warmer even if it can't be used by children who have open fires.
Various companies sell pure wool online and have low shipping rates within their country and overseas. I found an Irish company that sends wool to Canada for just $4, not bad at all. If one doesn't have a wool shop nearby (I do but they're expensive) then online is a good way to find wool yarn. I like some of the washable wool blends out now, 25% wool, 75% other.
Brilliant Laurie, just brilliant...these could qualify easily as January gemstone squares, I've got some polished semi-precious rocks that are these shades. Lopi is great stuff and they'll be delighted to get a 100% wool package from you, just mark that on the outside of the envelope so these squares can go to the poorest of the poor, even maybe a Hill child, living out in the open. Winter will come soon for them and this will be SO valuable when it rains. BRAVO.
This is lovely-and Lopi wool is SO warm-you are right, Laurie, I remember my sister using it in brown grey and cream for a Norwegian style sweater in the 70's , though I cannot remember what she looked like wearing it!
What a wonderful warm blanket. I love the pattern that you have created.
Wow - gorgeous blanket, lovely colours and it will be so snug and warm - love it !
Bev - Thanks, and, Lopi is a Reynolds 100% wool bulky yarn - I haven't used it in years. It was big in the 70's for Scandanavian sweaters and afgans. Almost impossible to find it still here on Cape Cod.
The red has given it some fire and goes extremely well with the greys. Lovely.
Another gorgeous blanket, Laurie. You're squares are always so neat and even.
I hate to ask, but..what is Lopi yarn?..I have never heard of this before. :)
