John Atkinson has a long and impressive history of manufacturing England’s Finest Blankets. Their history started in Sowerby Bridge in 1828 when John Atkinson & Sons started weaving high quality wool blankets before the reign of Queen Victoria. The John Atkinson brand was later acquired by Wormalds & Walkers of Dewsbury, who also manufactured the historical Hudson’s Bay Point Blanket and in 1983 Hainsworth bought Wormalds & Walkers, moving production of the John Atkinson blankets to their mill in Stanningley, West Yorkshire, where it remains today.
At Hainsworth everyone works hard to ensure that all John Atkinson Blankets meet the premium standards the luxury brand is synonymous with. All of the John Atkinson wool blankets are manufactured at the mill in West Yorkshire, allowing for complete control over the entire manufacturing process in one place, all the way through from raw wool to weaving, to the finished blanket. Each blanket is hand cut from the woven cloth and once the pieces are made and cut, they are hand finished in the blanket department on site and despatched directly to customers. This attention to detail and the traditional skills used at the Hainswoth Mill since 1783, makes all John Atkinson Blankets supremely luxurious and each one will be a long lasting, high quality product to be enjoyed by later generations. John Atkinson Blankets become heirlooms when looked after with care.
