The Merrion

This design of this blanket was a special commission from 5 Star Merrion Hotel in Dublin to celebrate its 25th anniversary in 2022. The inspiration for the colours of the blanket came from the Mainie Jellett painting 'Mother & Child' which hangs in the hotel. The blanket is made from indigenous Irish wool from native 'Galway' sheep at Cushendale Woollen Mills in Graiguenamanagh, Co. Kilkenny. 10% of the proceeds from the sale of The Merrion Blanket go to support the work of the Together Academy a unique college and social enterprise café in Dublin.
