Lovely early Welsh blanket . Pale umber with cream, crossover stripes in a rich dark walnut.
Joined up the middle and finished at each end by hand.
Quirky join as the stripes don't quite meet at the top and this is exaggerated toward the bottom - an original weaving error , a counting error by a hand weaver no doubt !
Twill weave - natural fleece and natural dyes
Initialed in one corner M L ( Mair Lewis )
