Mojafela (the heir)

In 1860, King Moshoeshoe I, the founder of the kingdom of Lesotho, was given a wool blanket as a gift by Queen Victoria. He was very taken with it and soon abandoned his traditional leopard-skin kaross in favour of the blanket. In 1867, the Moshoeshoe approached Queen Victoria asking for Lesotho to become a British protectorate following skirmishes with Boers migrating Northwards into the interior. The crown represents the history between King Moshoeshoe and Queen Victoria and England.

    Care: The best way to wash is to hand wash with course salt (the salt removes the dirt and keeps the fabric soft). However, it can be washed in the washing machine on a cool temperature - do not exceed 30 degrees Celsius. Have a look at our blog on the best way to care for your blanket
