The Statement Blanket: Luxury Wool from Røros Tweed in Norway

January 12, 2018

Earlier this week, at a friend’s house for dinner, I found myself repeatedly distracted by her giant green mohair blanket on her sofa (Céline). Then I came across Røros Tweed, a Norwegian textile company specializing in luxurious wool blankets and started to wonder: Is the statement blanket here to stay for 2018?

Based in Røros, a small mining town in Norway, Røros Tweed has made ultrasoft and insulating blankets from the wool of local Norwegian sheep since 1940. In recent years, the company has been collaborating with notable Scandinavian and European designers, including Anderssen & Voll, Ingá Sempe, and more. Here’s a selection of our favorite designs available through Røros Tweed dealers (US sources are below).
