Michael Collins Throw - Historic Reproduced Travel Blanket - Reviews
Own a real piece of Irish history with this historic reproduced 100% wool woven throw - in 1922, Foxford Woollen Mills crafted a specially commissioned travel blanket & presented it to General Michael Collins; this travel blanket was subsequently used by Michael Collins while travelling in his armoured car and was in his vehicle when the tragic ambush at Béal Na Bláth took place resulting in the death of one Ireland's greatest political icons.
This blanket has now been reproduced in conjunction with the Michael Collins House, Clonakilty, Co. Cork.
The blanket is in olive, gold and white in a Melange yarn, using a traditional Foxford check. A vintage 4 ply yarn was used for the weaving similar to the quality wool used in the early part of the last century resulting in a very warm sturdy blanket.

Please remember, wool is a natural fibre and has a strong element of flexibility. If your garment feels slightly small at first, give it a gentle stretch which will loosen the fibres in a way that will not damage the garment or cause it to lose its shape.
Where a specific size is available for a garment: To calculate the size sweater you require simply measure across the chest of your favourite sweater in inches and double that value.
