Australian Merino Blanket - Au Naturel
These knockout Australian Merino wool throw blankets by Melbourne's Curio Practice will grace your contemporary home for decades to come.
Launched in 2020 by textile designer Georgia Brunmayr, Curio Practice throw blankets have taken the design world by storm. The hefty weight and generous size of these blankets have to be felt to be believed. Each blanket is knitted from 2kg of superfine Australian Merino wool (21 microns) and comfortably covers a queen-size bed.
The extraordinary checkerboard pattern is nostalgic yet inherently modern. The Au Natural blanket is knitted from superfine undyed Merino wool yarn. This unique yarn comes from a special flock of Merino sheep that produces beautiful grey shades of undyed wool.
Blanket edges are finished by hand. The Curio label affixed to each blanket is embroidered in Central Victoria from Australian cotton and attached by hand.
Curio Practice Merino wool blankets are investment pieces that will part of your family for generations.

The Story Behind It
Curio Practice is an evolving consideration of how the value of heirloom objects—like those kept in curio cabinets of times gone by — are not bound by time. Curio Practice looks past the expectation of heirlooms being too precious to use, collecting dust in their cabinets, forever admired but never enjoyed, offering instead an object of functional artistry.
Created in 2020 by Georgia Brunmayr, Curio is a practice in responsible knitting, partnering with ethical Australian factories using consciously selected Australian merino yarns. Curio Practice blankets are manufactured in Melbourne, Australia, from 100% Australian Merino wool.
