How wool is natures high performance fibre

Durable, breathable, flame retardant, natural, sustainable and biodegradable. Research shows that when sleeping under wool your heart rate lowers giving you a more rested and refreshed feeling on awakening.

Our story

I often get asked about the history of our blankets so here is our story (by Polly McGuckin - General Manager)

Our proud Exquisite Wool Traders' history starts here in New Zealand and extends to a woollen mill in England that dates back to 1783. In 1893 this mill started buying NZ wool. This is proudly displayed in a logbook at the Yorkshire mill. Our family wool-buying business, Yaldhurst Wools, Christchurch, buys wool from the same farm featured in that logbook and other wool sourced from South Island farms. Some of this wool is exported to the mill in England.

Customer Reviews

Excellent merino wool throws, worth every penny! I bought three.

If you're looking for a throw that's both cozy and stylish, I highly recommend Exquisite Wool Traders merino wool throws. They're not just soft; they're incredibly luxurious to the touch, providing warmth without being too heavy or bulky.

The quality of these throws is outstanding. The craftsmanship is evident in every stitch, and the attention to detail really sets it apart from other blankets. It's the kind of product that feels like an investment, not just a purchase, because you know it's going to last.

And, when I say it's worth every penny, I mean it. The comfort, durability, and overall experience are fantastic. If you're in the market for a new throw or blanket, you can't go wrong with Exquisite Wool Traders products.

Items are always despatched from Exquisite in lightning speed and the quality of the blankets mean they last a lifetime. Certainly saved my bacon a number of times when I’ve run out of time on the gift buying front. The colour selection is amazing.

Hello Polly,

This is to say thank you for my exquisite blanket purchase which arrived this morning.  The colour is just perfect  - as is the texture and blanket stitch edging. (Olga Polizzi would be proud to have this gorgeous item in her hotels).

Personally I am a firm advocate of all wool products, having worked with and worn this amazing fibre over many decades. It deserves to be once more acknowledged as THE best that nature provides.

Your company is doing the industry proud.

Thank you once more,


I have just received my king size
woollen blanket in the post & am
thrilled with it. I wanted a king
size blanket for our queen size bed
to allow for rollover pulling of
blankets & the new blanket nearly
touches the floor on each side - just
perfect. So pleased with our
purchase & will look to get another
one in the future. Thanks for a great
quality product & quick delivery.


I love love my blanket thank you
so much. I also loved the wee
heart in the tweed fabric I
assume. Beautiful packaging too
and promptly received.


I originally spotted these gorgeous throws on Instagram, and after investigating the Exquisite Wool Traders website, I ordered the Harlequin "Tutti Frutti". The delivery was super speedy, and there was brilliant customer service. Their collection of wool and merino throws available online is truly amazing ... The quality is exceptional, with some stunning designs and vibrant colours, and it is very reasonably priced! I had recently bought this New Zealand-made sofa, so this particular throw has just added a pop of colour.


For as long as I remember I have been a customer of yours to the point I am now addicted. The quality in your blankets are like no other and I am just so happy I get to enjoy your beautiful range for many years to come. 


Thank you so much for your amazing quick service.  My bedding blanket arrived in the weekend!  I have been a long sufferer of insomnia and have woke at am every morning.  I never throught I would break this terrible routine but after a week of receiving my bedding blanket I have been sleeping until 7am. I have read about the benefits of sleeping under wool but truly didn’t feel it would make a difference to my terrible routine. I am overwhelmed to say I have been proven wrong. Thank you, Polly, for your help, I am feeling like a new person now I am getting a good nights sleep. Thank you, thank you, thank you.


Your name says it all EXQUISITE. In both colour and quality. Thank you for delivering so speedily so I get to enjoy your beautiful blankets.


The blankets truly are exquisite. The quality of the wool and the selection of designs are the most gorgeous I have ever come across. I have bought three blankets online from Exquisite Wool Traders over the past couple of years and I couldn't be happier!
