Masterweave Windermere range of soft Mohair Blanket Throws, Knee rugs and Scarves are wonderfully light and so many gorgeous colours to choose from. Made here in New Zealand and enjoyed around the world. Unlike sheeps wool, mohair doesn't have scales and therefore doesn't absorb odour like other fabrics Masterweave Windermere was commissioned by Peter Jackson, director of Lord of The Rings movie trilogy to develop fabrics that could accommodate the special effects used in the films. These fabrics were used on the costumes of the Oscar winning movies. In addition to receiving an Industry New Zealand Enterprise award for business innovation, Masterweave was commissioned to weave bench blankets for the All Blacks, New Zealand's national rugby team.
