This blanket uses a complex weave and is woven using both linen (heavy hemp) and natural wool from goats. The colors are a pale natural hemp off-white, a muted gray-blue, mossy green, and a faded blood orange red.
The woven plaid stripes appear on both sides. This blanket was constructed by first hand weaving the 2 lengths, which were then hand stitched together in a very primitive hand stitched seam down the middle. The ends are hand stitched with a hem. This lovely heavy textile weighs over 6 pounds and has a wonderful natural, heavy & floppy texture!
