This is a £20 non-refundable deposit for a king sized (160cm x 220cm) Midnight Nocturne blanket, made from recycled cotton. Nocturne is our newest design and these are the first blankets to be woven using it.
The darker colour will be made up of alternating blue, purple and black threads (see pictures) which will blend together during the brushing process and create a marled effect with flecks of individual colour. The lighter colour will be made from alternating pale grey and ecru which will again blend into a single marled shade .
The images shown are digital mock ups to show pattern placement and yarn alternation. They are not colour accurate so please do not make your decision based solely on the appearance of the mock up!! The mock up shows the cloth as it looks straight off the loom, before brushing, when you can still see the white warp showing through which makes the colours appear less saturated. Brushing the surface completely changes the appearance and blends together the coloured yarns. We’ve included a picture that shows the difference between unbrushed and brushed cloth to show how different they look.
The blue in the finished blanket is likely to appear much darker than it appears on the mock up, but will remain a bit of a mystery until they’re off the loom !The blanket will have blue blanket stitching round the hems.
All our blankets are reversible, so one side will have a dark blue background with light grey moons, the other side will be a pale grey background with the dark blue pattern.

The balance of £85 (plus shipping) will be payable when the blankets have been woven and are ready to post out. We cannot guarantee the timescale for the blanket production- it can easily take 12 weeks from the original order being placed. We expect these to be ready by the end of February 2021. If all goes well we’ll have no news about the blankets until they arrive at our workshop. If we are informed of a delay in production we will send you an updated time scale.
Should you wish to, you may transfer your deposit to another person without penalty. We do not need to be informed of the change, and you will still receive the email with the link to pay the balance. You will need to forward this to whoever is taking your place in the pre-order. They will need to put your name and your preorder deposit order number in the comments as proof that they are taking your place.
