This is what Otto & Spike have to say about the McFadyen Picnic Rug...
"We’ve got my mum to thank for this one.
She was quite sick last year and while visiting her I threw a rug over my legs to keep them warm. The tartan rug had been in the family for a long time and appeared at picnics or trips to the country.
As I sat there talking to her I begun to notice that the yarn it was knitted from was quite harsh – it’s no wonder it lasted so long. Further inspection revealed that it was made using Shetland yarn renowned for its strength – perfect for a picnic rug. This one is lined with moisture proof backing."
We are proud to say these picnic blankets are made from 100% surplus wools. As a consequence the colours are continually updated as each individual colour runs out. The images here are indicative only of what is currently available. Please call our store to discuss current colour options.
Made in Melbourne from a premium Australian Lambswool.
Blanket approximate dimensions. 1.6m wide x 1.6m high.
