McNutt of Donegal

Posted by NationalGalleryShop 26/07/2018 0 Comment(s)

 

 

(Don't want to sound over-dramatic, but) We now stock a selection of the most beautiful scarves, pashminas and blankets we have ever seen from McNutt of Donegal, which is the county's oldest woolen mills, located in the small seaside village of Downings on the Wild Atlantic Way.

 

 

 

 

 

This colourful waterfall consists of 100% Merino Lambswool Herringbone scarves which are €27.50 and come in their very own branded tube (which you can see above)

 

 

 

 

These stunning Clementine and Misty Grey pashminas are €51.95 and I really want someone to buy me one for Christmas.

 

 

 

 

These beautiful baby blankets are €41.95 and come displayed in a box with laser cut sheep. 'My First Baby Blaaaaaanket' would also have worked, but thankfully McNutt of Donegal are above that kind of thing.

 

 

 

 

Wool is not for everyone, and it is still July, and may even still be a heatwave - it's very hard to tell; so perhaps a Linen Pashmina is more your thing (€51.95). They're beautiful, breathable and very very soft.

 

 

 

Book of the Week #25

 

 

 

The longlist, or 'Man Booker Dozen', for the 2018 Man Booker Prize was announced earlier this week and featured two familiar Irish authors; Donal Ryan and Sally Rooney. A few weeks back Ryan's fantastic shortlisted novel, From a Low and Quiet Sea, was our book of the week. Normal People, Rooney's Man Booker hopeful, won't be on shelves until August, so we thought that this week we would feature her 2017 debut, Conversations with Friends.

 

 

"You can read Conversations with Friends as a romantic comedy, or you can read it as a feminist text. You can read it as a book about infidelity, about the pleasure and difficulties of intimacy, or about how our minds think about our bodies. However you choose to read it, it is an unforgettable novel about the possibility of love."

 

 

 

Each week you'll find a new book of the week beside the till, alongside the previous week's title, both of which will be on sale with 10% off for their fortnight in the spotlight.

Last week's title was The Lesser Bohemians by Eimear McBride

 

 

 

See you next week!
