Mayflower Tartan Merino Wool Blanket
Please note: This particular merino wool is quite coarse and thick, which makes this blanket extra warm and cozy. Perfect for chilly nights around the campfire or as a picnic blanket. We would not recommend the blanket for next to skin if you often find wool to be irritating.
In 1620, a small group of English émigrés set sail across the Atlantic in search of a better life. Their daring voyage aboard Mayflower is part of the founding history of the United States. A second Mayflower was constructed in Devon, England and sailed in 1957 to the same harbor where the Pilgrims landed centuries earlier. Mayflower's story is woven into every thread of this beautiful tartan. It features the colors of Mayflower II — blue, red, yellow, green and beige, along with dark blue for the ocean. A special thread count of 16-20-19-57 represents the years the two historic ships sailed from England to Massachusetts. Made exclusively for Plimoth Patuxet Museums, the tartan has been officially approved by the Scottish Register of Tartans.

The blanket is so beautiful and warm, and I appreciate the history represented by the colors and the thread count. The blanket was well packaged and arrived quickly. The Mayflower ribbon was a lovely presentation also. Thank you very much.
