Remodelista Reconnaissance: Traditional Blankets, Rugged Enough for the Cabin

May 5, 2023

Over the past couple years we’ve seen an old-school blanket make a comeback—perhaps most notably at Fforest, a former farm transformed into the ultimate Welsh country retreat, where Welsh blankets cover most every bed (and sofa, and chair).

We spotted the blankets recently in Fforest’s “garden shacks” and went on a quest to find a few of our own, perfect for pulling up at night when the temperature drops.

This is the Knot Garden pattern (an “intricate double cloth tapestry weave was created in the 1950’s with help from the rural industries board.
