It is said that St. Patrick introduced the Celtic Cross during his mission to convert Ireland’s population to Christianity in the 5th century. One theory is that he combined the Christian cross with the pagan sun to give new converts the idea of the importance of the cross by linking it with the symbolism of the life-giving properties of the sun.
Others say that placing the cross on top of the circle represents Christ’s supremacy over the sun, which was worshiped by pre-Christians.
We will never know for sure. But we do know that the Celtic Cross is synonymous with Ireland and that this throw blanket makes a wonderful gift, adding warmth and texture to the home of anyone with Irish pride.
Eight miles of 100% colour-fast, pre-shrunk cotton are woven into every Celtic Cross throw blanket. The tapestry-style throw has the vibrant colour, brilliant detail and luscious soft feel that can be achieved only through jacquard weaving.
Drape your Celtic Cross throw blanket over your sofa or bed or use to stay cosy while reading and watching telly. Unlike traditional Irish woollen throws, it can be machine washed and tumble dried and will stand up to years of daily use. In fact, it will only become softer and more welcoming with time.
Eight miles of 100% cotton [70% recycled] and 4600 individual threads are woven into every Loominations throw blanket, making them exceptionally luxurious and durable.
Our cotton is premium quality, sustainably sourced, colour fast, and pre-shrunk.
