More Cotton Blankets for Summer

This is the time of year to laze in the shade, enjoy the long days with their early mornings and late evenings, and weave with cotton. After my last batch of eight big cotton blankets, I soon warped the loom for more. They are hemmed, can be machine washed and dried, and are useful in summer - both outdoors and in.

Here are six of the latest cotton blankets:

C303 | 100% cotton | 190 cm x 133 cm (75" x 52") | Sold

C304 | 100% cotton | 217 cm x 135 cm (85" x 53") - extra long | Sold

C305 | 100% cotton | 193 cm x 138 cm (76" x 54.5") | Sold

C306 | 100% cotton | 188 cm x 135 cm (74" x 53") | Sold

C307 | 100% cotton | 192 cm x 135 cm (75.5" x 53") | Sold

C310 | 100% cotton | 155 cm x 135 cm (61" x 53") | $140

Interested in any?  Just let me know.

  2. Hello Goddess of the Loom,
    My daughter knew exactly what she wanted to get her brother when he went away to university: a blanket. When we saw your creations at the Immaculata Craft Fair in Ottawa we were sold on the first of the cotton blankets in your blogpost. We bought it.
    When my son opened the box on Christmas morning, he couldn't believe how beautiful the blanket was. He took it with him out to our friend's winter wonderland of a Quebec cottage and we took turns wrapping ourselves in it all day and night.
    I know he will cherish this blanket for many years. It already has a name: couette sans bout. As his dear baby blankie was called couette avec bou, as it was a quilt (couette) with (avec) a little edge seam (bou). This is his blanket (couette) without (sans) the little edge seam (bou), although I tried to tell him that there is a seam.
    Enough of that. I just wanted to let you know that your blanket will bring much comfort to a hardworking and slightly lonely McGill student over the next many many months.
    All the best,

    1. Dear Kia, what a beautiful story. Thank you so much, I am almost in tears to read this.
      I am so proud to post it on my blog! Best wishes to you, your daughter and your happy McGill student son for 2018. And thank you again so much.

  3. Would you like me to send you a picture of us with the blanket at the cottage?
