Lapuan Kankurit Saimaannorppa Wool Blanket
100% Pure New wool
130 x 180 cm (52 * 71 inches)
Northern nature and our environment are precious for Lapuan Kankurit and therefore we are participating in fundraising for the Finnish association for nature conservation, Suomen luonnonsuojeluliitto to protect The Saimaa Ringed Seal, an endangered seal living in Lake Saimaa, Finland.
Saimaannorppa, the Finnish version of "leopard pattern", is designed by Kaarina Tiainen and the series include sauna textiles, such as seat covers, sauna pillows and washed linen towels as well as wool blankets and hot water bottles. Psst! The print in each hot water bottle is slightly different, just like each Saimaa Ringed Seal.
The products include Save the Saimaa Ringed Seal woven logo and Lapuan Kankurit donates a fixed sum to Suomen luonnonsuojeluliitto for each delivered product. Donation for each blanket sold is 5€.
This product is made from 100% New Zeeland wool. Wool is mulesing free and we work only with certified spinning mills. All yarns are spun as well as dyed in Europe according to REACH regulations and fulfil the ÖKO-TEX certificate.
Our strategy is to be responsible for the whole production from yarn to readymade products. Main part of our whole production is made in our own weaving mill in Lapua.
