we are so proud to launch our “celebrating 25 years” local hood range of small batch run blankets made right here in geelong by our friends : geelong weaving mill. kristen has designed 4 colourways and named them after the 4 streets that surround her east geelong store.
the base colours of the range tie back to the GOOSE concept with the natural colour to match our calico change rooms + signature gift wrapping : the GOOSE green + charcoal being close in colour of our milestone 25th birthday celebration being “silver” : also complimenting the metal shelving we display all of our beautiful wares instore.
our blankets are proudly woven in geelong, australia : 100% wool : made using surplus yarn.
let us take you for a walk around the hood + meet our village.
where it all began :garden street: this blanket was the first piece as part of the collection. paying tribute to the journey of GOOSE. we’ve strongly identified ourselves over the years with the colour green. the original green was bright, young + playful way back in 1996. 25 years on the green has matured and mellowed to work back and compliment a more relaxed lifestyle and is more in touch with nature.
wander down the lane beside the store and you’ll discover :davey street: the quieter neighbourhood street lined with quaint houses and well manicured gardens. looking up at the sky this colourway celebrates its blue tones partnered back with the fundamental GOOSE base colours.
turning left out of the store : stroll along garden street and peruse + be tempted by the selection in the window at the black cup cafe or maybe perch on the deck enjoying a coffee and cinnamon scroll at the local where you can watch the world pass by.mckillop street: many of you will know this street as a direct access to the shopping hub of east geelong + the street with many statuesque home that house many of our loyal + lovely customers.
fast paced + busy :ormond road: a quick dash across the road to find many essentials : from wholefoods tucked around the corner at eastside along ormond road at feast + east fruit market or a delicious bowl of warming soup at common people. this blanket has a strong colour palette to match. working off our base colour range and introducing a deep rust to balance the depth of colour and give a highlight.
to care for our blankets : please cold machine wash on wool cycle using a mild wool soap : line dry : do not tumble dry or bleach.
