Bikes, trams and rows of terraces. Hot air balloons glowing gold at dawn. The giant smile of Luna Park and, further along the line, the spire of Arts Centre with the Yarra just beyond. There are some things that make your heart beat just a little harder for the town we love, and Otto and Spike's Melbourne Blanket is one of them.
Made with Premium Extrafine Australian Merino, and in a range of colours to suit just about any style, the care and craft in these simple blankets makes them something really special. Celebrate Melbourne's love affair with beautiful arts and design, support Aussie manufacturing, and take home a souvenir you'll treasure for years.
Otto and Spike make all of their knitwear from a small factory in East Brunswick. A true Aussie-battler story, the Otto and Spike label was born when a 50-year-old East Brunswick textile producer realised that they could no longer compete with cheap offshore competitors. Their response? To cut out the middle-man, become their own customer, and design and produce products for their own brand-new label!
Otto and Spike make a first-class 100% Aussie product using new and original machinery, and often repurpose high-quality Australian yarns - which would otherwise be discarded as surplus - to make their distinctive, super-quality knitwear. Melbournalia stocks a range of Otto and Spike products including socks, blankets, hats and scarves.
Material(s): 100% Premium Australian Extra Fine Merino.
Size (cm): 150 x 210 (large - single bed cover or generous throw for queen/king bed), 150 x 150 (medium - square throw blanket).
* Care Instructions: Merino wool is naturally self-cleaning - often a good shake out and some time airing will bring your blanket a fresh feeling. Otherwise, hand wash in luke-warm water with a wool-friendly laundry product and dry flat in the shade.
