Cushion Diana Vreeland Rectangular
The Winter in Holland ‘warm knits’ collection is knitted from a combination of Virgin wool and a cashmere wool. After using this knit for a while, the pattern in the Virgin wool will felt, which makes it even more beautiful.
A characteristic of pure wool is that it is easy to care for. It is a self-cleaning product. “The core of the wool fibre consists of two types of cells that absorb different quantities of moisture. As a result, one type swells more than the other and they move in constant friction. This gives the wool fibre a mechanical self-cleaning effect.” Wool products do not need frequent cleaning and rather should be aired in humid weather conditions.
Wool if treated kindly with respond in kind by maintaining its beauty and softness for its long life.
In order to keep the wool happy:
1. Minimal washing.
2. If washing is necessary, spot washing or a cold hand wash will give the best results.
3. Do not put me in the dryer. Dry me on a flat surface.
4. Do not iron me, the woven pattern will not appreciate that.
5. Love me & hug me. I will do the same for you.

Diana Vreeland, a well known columnist and editor in fashion. She has an undeniably strong feminine and authentic classic style.
All pieces in the first collection of Winter in Holland are named after female icons from the past and from the present. You can find, for example, an Iris Apfel cushion or an Goldie Hawn blanket!
The fabric has a base of two different yarns: a cash-wool yarn which is white and super soft, and a thick virgin woollen yarn. The last one is quite hairy and gives the blanket a ‘raw’ feeling. The pattern design, which is woven into the knit, is quite graphic and gives a structure of small beams all over the fabric.
This product is knitted by hand and a part of the yarns are dyed by hand.
