McFadyen Picnic Rug

We’ve got my mum to thank for this one.

She was quite sick last year and while visiting her I threw a rug over my legs to keep them warm. The tartan rug had been in the family for a long time and appeared at picnics or trips to the country.

As I sat there talking to her I begun to notice that the yarn it was knitted from was quite harsh – it’s no wonder it lasted so long. Further inspection revealed that it was made using Shetland yarn renowned for its strength – perfect for a picnic rug. This one is lined with moisture proof backing.
