Madder Grid Wool Blanket

275.00

This blanket is a true beauty. It was woven using yarn spun from local sheep and llamas. The red stripes are dyed using the root of the madder plant. 

For four years I worked at a wool mill. My job involved handling lots of fiber and processing it into yarn.  The grey wool was the first yarn run I put together and processed for my own collection.  It is spun from local sheep and alpaca fleeces that were blended with bamboo fiber.  The result is a warm and shiny yarn. 

I wove the blanket in a twill structure. This creates a slightly dense fabric that will keep you warm on those cold days.  

When it's not on your body drape it over the couch, chair, or bed for a lovely accent.
