You asked for it, and we delivered. The Swiss Link Classic Wool Blanket is now available in the famous red-plaid Royal Stewart pattern. This plaid pattern, or tartan, is best known for its association with the royal House of Stewart and is famously the personal tartan of Queen Elizabeth II.
But who can wear Royal Stewart? Despite its royal associations, the Royal Stewart Tartan can be worn by anyone, a status confirmed by the Scottish Register of Tartans, which states: "In the same way that clansmen wear the tartan of their chief, it is appropriate for all subjects of the Queen to wear the Royal Stewart tartan."
But really, you can thank the punk rock rebellion of the 70s and 80s for that. Basically, the punks of that era wore the Royal Stewart tartan as a way to thumb their nose at the elite saying “you think this is yours, well it’s ours now.” They put it on everything from their doc martens to their vests.
Like the rest of the Swiss Link Classic Wool plaid collection, these blankets are 80% wool, 3.7 lbs, and generously sized at 88” x 60”. They're soft to the touch, the stitching is solid, and the weave is fine. Classic wool blankets are great for use in your car or recreational vehicle and make a great companion for camping or going on picnics. They function perfectly as trusted throw blankets providing excellent insulation in the wet and cold.
