All Carrie's Blankets and Throws are lovingly hand crocheted using 100% New Zealand wool. Most of the wool used is from Lynley's flock of Valais Blacknose sheep. Other wool is from a mill in Wellington that processes and spins 100% New Zealand wool. Crocheting uses more wool than knitting so our blankets are extra warm and snug.
Our Valais Blacknose wool is washed in a mild plant based soap then rinced before it is sent to Christchurch to be spun by a small home base spinning business. On it's return it is either left natural or dyed in 1kg batches before it is wound into balls.
