The Tone Glen Check Blanket in Tobacco


Of all the things he had collected from countries whose languages he did not speak and whose cultures felt both intriguing and strange, this was most familiar and his favourite. It brought with it a comfort that reminded him of childhood. He lifted the blanket to inspect its colour and pattern, delicately woven and yet it had endured so much. If woollen blankets could talk, he thought, what wonders they would speak - “or perhaps not”, he said aloud, “let they their secrets keep.”

Your home too may want a blanket that reminds you of childhood comfort. The Fox Tone Glen Check Blank is one such treasure, its tobacco and chocolate glen check and ochre and pale blue detail make it versatile in its purpose. Woven in much the same manner as it has been for the last 250 years, this blanket proves a timeless aesthetic both for contemporary interiors and those to come.

 SIZE: 200 x 150 cm

CARE: Dry clean only

CLOTH: 100% fine merino, blanket stitched edge; woven in Somerset

      The essence of any timeless piece lies on the cusp of its heritage and how effortlessly it fits into modern design. Taken from the Fox Brothers archives, this blanket brings with it the story of its past; weave, colour, and maker - then fitting of our modern age, forges its way into something new.

      Fox Brothers, established in Somerset in Western England in 1772, is credited with being the originator of fine woollen and worsted flannels. The English woollen mill is still considered to produce the best in the world and according to style connoisseurs, when choosing flannel, “always ask for it (Fox) by name”.
