More Wool Blankets - in July!

These wool blankets were a slightly challenging project but totally worth it. I had a request for two new blankets in the Georgian Bay collection and I wanted to weave more wool blankets anyway, but I needed my head checked for wanting to work with wool and mohair when my upstairs studio was pretty warm at times - it sure is now. But, as I said - totally worth it. They're all woven in twill blocks in a broken twill pattern. Some have alternating yarns in the weft, which takes much longer to weave but - "totally worth it."

Here they are:

SH113 | 100% wool | 172 cm x 127 cm (67.5" x 50") | Sold
