  • From Seaside to Stateside, The Tartan Blanket Co. will leave you wanting to wrap up in their snuggliest blankets and scarves.

     

    EDINBURGH, SCOTLAND, August 10, 2019. Scottish, family-run, natural wool blanket and scarf business, The Tartan Blanket Co., is pleased to be participating in NY NOW between August 10 and August 14 at booth 2955. Young couple and co-founders of TBCo. have travelled the world in search of sustainable fibres and manufacturing processes to weave their newest collection to present to the US.

     

    TBCo. is reinventing the tartan blanket with sustainable practices. Thanks to its natural durability, wool is known for its long lifespan. Fibres can bend up to 20,000 times before breaking (as a comparison, cotton can only bend 3,000 times). TBCo. was inspired to develop products that take advantage of wool’s recyclable nature while tackling the challenge of reused wool strands being too short to respin. Their solution is to blend recycled wool with longer mixed fibres that would otherwise end up in landfill, creating a soft, durable and sustainable yarn. 

     

    They will unveil their selection of natural wool blankets and scarves in traditional tartans and contemporary lifestyle designs that have been considerately curated by the Edinburgh-based team. The exhibition will showcase the product range in Recycled Wool, Lambswool, and Cashmere. In contrast to fast fashion culture, each product has been thoughtfully designed to last for years to come. Products available include Full Blankets, Knee Blankets, Baby Blankets and Picnic Blankets, along with scarves in a Standard, Oversized and Blanket size. 

     

    “We’re beyond thrilled to be exhibiting at NY NOW this year. It's a great opportunity to boast about the natural properties of wool, as well as our Scottish heritage and talent” - Fergus Macdonald, co-founder of The Tartan Blanket Co.

     

    “Fergus and I are proud of our team for the hard work they have put into our new branding and new product range, which has just launched in Harvey Nichols and Liberty London!” - Emma Macdonald, co-founder of The Tartan Blanket Co. 

     

    The Tartan Blanket Co. bring warm and durable textiles, encapsulating Scottish heritage and modern living, with the environment in mind,  to NY NOW. Not only will you want to wrap up in the snuggliest of blankets and scarves, but you will also feel a sense of nostalgia for Scotland, even if you have never visited. Find TBCo. in booth 2955 between August 10 - August 14 for lovingly designed and woven natural wool products.

  • The Tartan Blanket Co. Recycled Wool Blankets
    70% Recycled Wool, 30% Mixed Fibres Saved From Landfill...

  • Thanks to its natural durability, wool is known for its long lifespan. Fibres can bend up to 20,000 times before breaking (as a comparison, cotton can only bend 3,000 times). This got us thinking, how can we take advantage of this amazing feature, especially since recycling wool can be a challenge as the fibres are often too short to respin? Our solution is to blend recycled wool with longer mixed fibres saved from landfill to create a soft and durable yarn. 

    Woven in a dense twill weave and brushed for texture, recycled wool gives you all the benefits of wool, in a sustainable blanket. What’s more, they’re even machine washable.

  • The Tartan Blanket Co. Lambswool Blankets
    100% Lambswool...

  • Lambswool is the highest quality sheep’s wool. It’s gathered from a lamb’s first shearing, meaning the fibres are smoother, stronger and hold more elasticity than any other wool. The unique crimps in the individual strands generate air pockets that retain heat while repelling moisture, keeping you warm when you’re cool, and cool when you’re warm. Along with being a naturally insulating, breathable and hypoallergenic textile, it’s beautifully soft. Doesn’t get much better than that.

    Led by design, our lambswool collection seeks to merge our Scottish roots with contemporary living through applying modern colours to traditional weaving techniques.

  • The Tartan Blanket Co. Cashmere Blankets
    100% Cashmere...

  • The definition of luxury, Cashmere is traditionally combed from the super soft undercoat of the Cashmere goat. The downy wool fibres are then sorted by hand from the goat’s protective outer layer. Cashmere is finer, stronger, lighter, and approximately three times more insulating than sheep's wool. And did we mention soft? So, so soft.

    Considerately curated and carefully woven, our cashmere collection is a perfect mix of tradition and timelessness.

  • The Tartan Blanket Co. Lambswool Baby Blankets
    100% Lambswool...

  • Delicately soft lambswool for wrapping up your little lamb. Lovingly designed with tiny fingers and delicate skin in mind, Little TBCo. baby blankets are naturally insulating, breathable and hypoallergenic. They’re cut to the perfect size for a cot or pram and oh-so giftable.
  • The Tartan Blanket Co. Lambswool Scarves
    100% Lambswool...

  • The deep chill of Scottish winters has taught us a thing or two about keeping cosy. Though wool is lightweight, it is far warmer than other fabrics. In fact, no other fibre can meet wool's amazing weight to warmth ratio, which makes our super soft lambswool scarves incredibly insulating, while remaining beautifully light. 

    Available in three sizes and an array of classic and contemporary designs, meet your new cold weather essential.

  • The Tartan Blanket Co. Cashmere Scarves
    100% Cashmere...

  • Your luxurious and silky soft answer for keeping warm. Our cashmere scarves are woven from the super fine coat of the cashmere goat whose wool is well loved for its natural insulating properties and exceptional smoothness. Meet the chill of winter with the warmth of cashmere.

    Our selective range of cashmere scarves features timeless tartans in three varying sizes.
