In early 1922, Foxford Woollen Mills presented a specially commissioned Travel Blanket to General Michael Collins to mark his appointment to Commander in Chief of the newly established Irish Army.  The blanket was in his armoured car at the ambush at Béal Na Bláth in August 1922.  It was recovered at Shanakiel Hospital by Nurse Nora O'Donaghue and later donated to the National Museum.

Foxford Woollen Mills have reproduced the blanket in conjunction with the Michael Collins House, Clonakilty, Co. Cork.

The blanket is in olive, gold and white in a Melange yarn, using a traditional Foxford check.  A vintage 4 ply yarn was used for the weaving similar to the quality wool used in the early part of the last century resulting in a very warm sturdy blanket.

Michael Collins Throw

I bought two Michael Collins throws for my two adult children for Christmas. They absolutely loved the history attached to them but also loved the quality. I was delighted with their reaction and felt that I had given them a very special Christmas present and one that they will cherish for years to come. The throw is beautiful, heavy and just a fabulous heirloom. My own experience of dealing with Foxford was excellent- easy to navigate website and online shopping channel and when I had reason to make personal contact it was as easy to get someone to talk to who was most helpful. I have no hesitation in recommending this company and in particular this beautiful throw.

The Perfect Throw

An early-arriving 2020 Christmas gift, the Michael Collins throw is my immediate family's fourth Foxford blanket, and the one I fully claim for myself (family be damed, they can have it when I die). While much can be— and is— said for Foxford's light-weight throws, which provide all the warmth one would need, there is a special place carved out in my heart for a traditional, heavy throw. Comfortably, and warmly, cocooning, there's nothing quite like the well-made weight of a traditional throw to ward off the chill of time and temperature. So beyond the other throws, and various sundry bath towels, this is by far my favorite Foxford product. While I wish I'd been able to have had it shipped direct, 2020's COVID-19 crisis simply wouldn't allow for it (but problems can always be solved). I wish the niche for the heavier-weight, traditional four-ply throws could be enlarged. You'd certainly find a willing buyer. I'd solve the problem of storage space at a later time. Kudos on my favorite purchase of a terrible year.
