We've got my mum to thank for this one.
She was quite sick last year and while visiting her, I threw a rug over my legs to keep them warm. The tartan rug had been in the family for a long time and appeared at picnics or trips to the country.
As I sat there talking to her, I began to notice that the yarn it was knitted from was quite harsh, it's no wonder it lasted so long. Further inspection revealed that it was made using shetland yarn renowned for its strength perfect for a picnic rug. This one is lined with moisture proof backing.
We are proud to say these picnic blankets are made from 100% surplus wools. As a consequence, colours are continually being updated as each individual colour runs out. The photographs of colourways here are indicative only. When you select a picnic rug, we will ship the current blanket within that colour family.
Otto & Spike proudly knit everything in our little factory in East Brunswick. Occasionally popular items sellout quickly and we have to knit them especially for you.
