Avoca WIN in the Irish Made Awards Textile Category!

Aug 14, 2022

We are absolutely delighted to have WON in this year's @irishcountrymag Irish Made Awards textiles category with our Harriet Mohair Tweed Throw! A huge, heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone who voted for us.

Cast in a palette of warm burnt orange and vibrant blue, it’s made from 100% Donegal wool and mohair yarn and has been woven in our Wicklow Mill. 

Derived from the old Irish word abhoca meaning ‘little treasure’, our weaving mill is a gem tucked away in Avoca village. Ireland’s oldest weaving mill, we’ve been weaving here since 1723 and are proud to say there are third generation weavers still working here today. If you love this beautiful throw as much as we do, you can buy it here.

We fondly call our throws ‘woven hugs’ because they’ve been created with love and care and provide warmth and comfort to people’s homes all over.

We were completely honoured to be finalists in the Irish Made Awards’ Textiles category alongside a host of fantastic Irish craftspeople and creators, and even more thrilled to have won! We would like to extend a huge congratulations to everyone else shortlisted for the awards, and a huge thank you for every single vote. We are so grateful!
