Michael Collins Throw - Historic Reproduced Travel Blanket
Own a real piece of Irish history with this historic reproduced 100% wool woven throw - in 1922, Foxford Woollen Mills crafted a specially commissioned travel blanket & presented it to General Michael Collins; this travel blanket was subsequently used by Michael Collins while travelling in his armoured car and was in his vehicle when the tragic ambush at Béal Na Bláth took place resulting in the death of one Ireland's greatest political icons.
This blanket has now been reproduced in conjunction with the Michael Collins House, Clonakilty, Co. Cork.
The blanket is in olive, gold and white in a Melange yarn, using a traditional Foxford check. A vintage 4 ply yarn was used for the weaving similar to the quality wool used in the early part of the last century resulting in a very warm sturdy blanket.
