LAPUAN KANKURIT JUHANNUS (3 colors available)
Lovely piece of natural dyed local Finnsheep wool blanket.
This lovely, soft and warm blanket was designed by Hanna Galtat. Hanna’s cooperation with Lapuan Kankurit began with the Aalto University's PatternLab project. Designed during the project, the JUHANNUS blanket was inspired by the increasing and decreasing of the intensity of daylight before and after summer solstice.
JUHANNUS-blanket contains local Finnsheep wool. This blanket is woven in our own weaving mill and finished in our new finishing mill in Lapua.
This product is woven and finished in Lapua from wool yarn spun from locally sourced Finnsheep fibre, mixed fibre and certified Wool Integrity NZ fibre. The warp used is South American wool fibre spun in Europe. The wool is dyed with plant dyes in Lappajärvi, Finland.
Lapuan Kankurit's strategy is to be responsible for the whole production from yarn to readymade products. Main part of our whole production is made in their own weaving mill in Lapua. For this product the product development, material purchases, programming of looms and design as well as warping, weaving, finishing and fabric inspection is done in Lapua in our own weaving mill. Sewing is mainly done in their own subsidiary sewing company in Lithuania or in their own weaving mill in Lapua. Accessories come from Europe, mainly from Finland.
