The Seljak Gather blanket is a soft, lighter-weight blanket suited to cool breezes. It can be used as a throw for the couch and the bed, for outdoor dining or taking to the moonlight cinema. This blanket is made with yarn spun in Italy out of old woollen jumpers and garments.

  • 70% recycled wool, 25% polyamide, 5% recycled other fibres
  • Made in Lithuania
  • 180cm x 130cm
  • 600g
  • Fringe finish
  • Diverts 450g of textile waste from landfill
  • For every blanket sold, we donate $2 to the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre

The weave of the Gather blanket brings together the many threads of a gulayi (Quandamooka women’s bag) which loops and diagonally knots ungaire (freshwater swamp reeds). Gulayi have supported daily life for millennia and were used to gather shellfish from the shorelines of Minjerribah and Mulgumpin (North Stradbroke and Moreton Island). Our Quandamooka waters are alive, nurturing and sustaining us with ginyingara (oysters), eugaries (pipis)and quampi shells and many other precious freshwater and saltwater food sources. Today, on country, we gather to weave and feast from the dabiyil (waters). Quandamooka djagan marumba (Quandamooka country is beautiful). – Elisa Jane Carmichael

How It's Made

We work with a range of mills in Australia and Europe that each have a special part to play in producing blankets from offcuts and yarn that would otherwise be destined for landfill. Seljak Brand uses predominantly pre- and post-consumer textiles waste that is recycled in mills in Italy, Lithuania and in Geelong and Tasmania, here in Australia. We also work with a knitting studio in the Yarra Valley (60kms from Melbourne) to knit 100% merino blankets. Read more about the mills and processes involved in making your blanket.

Care Instructions

  • Shake and air out your blanket by hanging it in the sun
