Shetland Wool Blankets in Browns with Colours

I've lost count of how many Shetland wool blankets I've woven but this latest project is probably somewhere in a batch in the twenties. These are my classic wool blankets and I love designing, weaving and finishing them. This project incorporated wide lengthwise stripes of regular and advancing twills to produce contrasting straight and fuzzy-lined diamonds. After weaving, fringe twisting is a portable activity and two of these blankets accompanied me on some recent local travels.

One blanket of the six below (SH184) was woven with my handspun white wool, making it a little thicker than the others. Any of these blankets would make a really special wedding, grad or retirement gift.

Here they are:

SH183 | 100% wool | 170 cm x 127 cm (67" x 50") | $290

SH184 | 100% wool with approx. 50% handspun | 175 cm x 138 cm (69" x 54") | $375

SH185 | 100% wool | 168 cm x 127 cm (66" x 50") | $290

SH186 | 100% wool | 178 cm x 128 cm (70" x 50.5") | $290

SH188 | 100% wool | 186 cm x 125 cm (73" x 49") | $290

SH189 | 100% wool | 199 cm x 125 cm (77" x 49") | $290

As always ... let me know if you're interested in any of these and would like more information or photos.
