Cotton throw – OYSTER


Whitchurch Silk Mill is a gem of industrial heritage located on the banks of the River Test in rural Hampshire, UK. Built in 1815, beautiful artisan cloth is still woven within the original Georgian building by our small team of highly skilled Weaver Tacklers using historical machinery and heritage silk weaving skills. Stunning Limited Edition cloth is designed, warped and woven in house, preserving Living Weaving Heritage.

Many people don’t know that throughout the Mill’s long history, we have woven with many different fibres. These have included wool, cotton, alpaca, synthetic yarns and more recently linen, just as long as they were fine deniers.

Having been inspired by the Mill’s rich archive of diverse fabrics, we have challenged our historical looms to work with cotton warp and weft to create a collection of just 13 striking, versatile throws. Soft neutrals and dark hues splashed with accents of bold, bright colours make these throws the perfect statement piece for your furnishings.

Entirely made from mercerised cotton, soft and cosy for chilly winter evenings. The cotton is from Yorkshire based company Copley Marshall & Co, who have their own extensive history, manufacturing fine count yarn since 1899.

We work meticulously with historical machinery to create beautiful, fine cloth. Our fabric goes through a lengthy production process and is woven in small runs. Due to the age of the machinery we are working with, it is possible some characteristics of the looms may be present in the finished cloth. Each of our products are unique due to these characteristics and the hand finishing techniques mean finished measurements are approximate.

100% cotton, woven in Hampshire. Dry clean only. Throw will soften with use, creases will drop out with use. Whitchurch Silk giftbox included. Approximate dimensions 130cm x 230cm.
