SKU: QueenBlanket-Checkerboard,Grey(light)/White Category: Tags: ,


Our Checkerboard Queen wool blankets consist of alternating 4″ white and dark grey stripes on the warp. The weft is composed of 2 complementary 4″ bands of natural or dyed yarn along the length of the blanket.

No other fibre provides all the qualities of wool – it has enduring warmth even when wet, is breathable, and is machine washable. Wool deters dust mites, mould and mildew growth, and is a renewable resource.

Topsy Farms blankets, throws and yarn are processed from selected fleeces that have been washed in gentle soaps to preserve the wool’s natural softness. The traditional woollen mill that washes all our fleeces avoids using sulphuric acid and other harsh chemicals that are regularly utilized in commercial wool processing. This is why our wool is not “prickly” – the fibres are smooth and are softened by the naturally occurring lanolin – not broken and barbed as in most commercial wool products.

Perfect as a traditional wedding gift, our blankets are also great for campers and cottagers alike, and for those who appreciate the comfort and style of wool in their homes. They are appropriate for use year-round: cool in the summer (pure wool “breathes” unlike man-made fibres) and warm in the winter (maintaining optimal body temperature). Topsy Farms blankets are unmatched in durability.

Our wool products are machine washable – if you follow our washing instructions.

Each Checkerboard Queen blanket features the Topsy Farms label – our sign that it is an authentic product and that it carries our Guarantee of Excellence. Blankets and other wool products from Topsy Farms bring you comfort, durability and natural richness to last a lifetime.

    These blankets are very good quality and have a good thickness to them. We bought one to replace our duvet, one to replace our matress cover, and did the same on our kids beds. We also bought one to cover our futon in the tv room. The blankets look beautiful and have worked for us in the summer and winter. The great thing about them is they are hypoallergenic and don’t hold any smells. Washing them is easy with Eucalan. The reason I bought the blankets was because I wanted to have all natural bedding in our rooms to compliment our cotton mattresses – they are a very healthy alternative to synthetic fabrics!

    I bought this blanket, the fourth from Topsy, and it is excellent. I consider it to be a heritage item that will be passed along for generations. It looks like your grandmother’s blanket but the gentle processing ensures that it does not feel like your grandmother’s blanket. The colours are subtly wonderful — in this case the pink box check. I was so happy when I found Topsy Farms a few years ago — Canadian product, small farm product. This is a purchase that feels good on a whole bunch of levels.

    I bought this blanket for a friend’s 50th birthday. She was ecstatic This is one beautiful blanket. I had been shopping for quite some time for a special heirloom wool blanket that is such good quality and to last for years. No company I searched out can compare this reasonable price for this quality. This blanket has a really nice thickness to it. I am a huge fan of this product and hopefully I can buy one for myself too. I would recommend purchasing these blankets to anyone.

    After completing a lot of research, I settled on purchasing on-line a couple of queen washable blankets for my new apartment. After trying these two out for warmth, itchiness (I have mild eczema and am allergic to wool products – especially lanolin) and comfort, I decided to purchase another 4 of the same type. I am very pleased with the product and didn’t mind waiting for the shipping. Plus they look beautiful when spread out on the bed – which is a king!

    Ordered this blanket for my son. The size is perfect and the colours are perfectly balanced. The weight is nice alone for summer and a lovely addition for winter. A blanket made for a lifetime.

    I was SO pleased with this blanket. It was shipped immediately and when I opened it I couldn’t be more pleased. The colours (grey) is true to the photo, the weight of the blanket is perfect, the fact that it is Canadian product is also a bonus. I bought it online, without seeing it and am actually thinking of buying more products from Topsy Farms.

    First 2 blankets from these guys. Look well made. Will check in again a few years from now to share how they stand up to use. Good weight, good density, great colour. Prefer to buy Canadian and if this stands up to the test of time, I’ll will be buying many more
