Three New Wool/Mohair Blankets

Three of the new blankets are approximately half commercial wool (warp) in greys and cream, and the other half of undyed handspun wool and mohair.  They are all woven in twill blocks in different treadlings: B121 has diagonal twill lines (the herringbone look), B122 has broken twill for a slightly mottled look, and B125 has a combination of the two.  The mohair blends gives the blankets a light and airy feeling and look without being too fuzzy or scratchy.

Each blanket is 180 cm (six feet) or longer and 130 cm (53 inches) or a little wider. I expect that these blankets will last and be enjoyed for many years.
