Holidays are a time to relax at home in a cozy atmosphere.  Add a festive touch to your home with this gorgeous knit blanket.  The Woodside Fair Isle Festive Blanket by Jenny Watson is a special heirloom piece knit in West Yorkshire Spinners The Croft Aran weight yarn.

This beautiful & unique yarn is spun with 100% Shetland Island wool.  Located about 100 miles off the northeastern coast of Scotland, the Shetland Islands are renowned for their sheep that produce soft, yet strong, durable wool.  The yarn knits into pieces that are both warm & durable.

The Woodside blanket features a ribbed border that then transitions to bands of stranded colorwork motifs that include evergreens, snowflakes & other festive patterns.  The blanket has a feeling of nostalgia, yet has a modern, updated look.  Woodside is also a thoughtful & loving family gift.

The kit includes 15 skeins of WYS The Croft Aran (6 x Stanydale, 4 x Reawick, 5 x Sullom) & a printed Woodside Fair Isle Festive Blanket pattern by Jenny Watson.
