  • Care Instructions

    All shawls are supplied pre-washed using gentle products suitable for sensitive skin, and are ready for immediate use.

    Due to the nature of the fine quality yarns, please wash by hand in water not above 30 degrees in temperature and dry flat, away from direct sunlight.

    Scalloped edges will naturally relax after washing. This is normal and does not deter from the quality of the product. For a perfect finish, simply pin out the scalloped edges, cover with a cloth and press with a cool iron.

    Do not machine wash under any circumstance - even "hand wash" or "fragile" cycles are not appropriate - as the spinning action of the machine's drum will cause felting the fine lacy-knitted fabric.

“GHG. H. Hurt & Son have been makers of the finest lace knitwear for over a century. Made in Nottingham England and evoking the Orenburg and Shetland styles, these blankets will be handed down through the generations as treasured heirlooms.

Using crafts and techniques that are 400 years old, G.H Hurt & Son blankets are the work of artisan crafters overseen by a 4th generation master knitter. Their delicate and soft shawls are made from the finest fibres, including Australian merino wool, and are still sometimes knitted using their collection of vintage handframe machines.
