HOUNDWORTHY Witney Wool Horse Rug

Forget The Hudson's Bay Blanket... This Is The Real Deal

£129.00

Ask anyone over the age of 50 to name the best wool blanket they can think of and they’ll tell you it’s something called a “point blanket”; most will also state “a Witney point blanket.”

Canadians and Americans also refer to them as “point blankets” but few will be able to tell you where they originated.

The small town of Witney, in Oxfordshire, is the ancestral home of the traditional British wool trade. Blankets have been made here since medieval times.

One of the oldest marques of them all “Early’s of Witney” adorns this beautifully thick version, specially finished in distinctive red wool edge yarn just for us. 140cm X 160cm

Early’s of Witney originally supplied high quality wool blankets to The Hudson’s Bay Company back in the 1700’s, to provide currency for exchange for furs with Native Americans. This is the original Witney wool blanket. Our Witney Wool Horse Rug is produced in small quantities and bound with a distinctive red whipping yarn.

Our unique embroidered HOUNDWORTHY ribbon marque completes the article and we don’t believe you’ll find a more historied nor substantial pure wool blanket.

Traditionally used to keep horses warm during cooler spells, the weight of these is unparalled. And as a picnic blanket, its colourful and pleasing design makes a bold statement on any patch of grass lucky enough to have it. We don’t travel anywhere without one.
