Four More New Wool Blankets

Four blankets are presented together below. All are 100% wool and woven in undulating twill, which creates lovely waves of gentle movement to the eye.

The first one I wove with my handspun wool that came from the Wenger Sheep Farm nearby. It has muted grey tones from natural variations in the fleece. And it's extra wide because the handspun is washed before I weave with it, so it's done all its minor shrinking before becoming part of the blanket.

The next one in the fall colours of heathery orange and gold is currently my Cariboo Handwoven photo on Facebook and has received many likes and compliments.

The last two are in blues because I can never have enough blue blankets (or towels) available. Each blanket has two harmonious shades of blue added to the greys and cream.

Here they are!
