This very unique blanket was authentically reproduced by New Hampshire weavers about forty years ago. Special attention to detail was considered when making this textile (a true labor of love) as it was fashioned from virgin wool gathered on a New Hampshire farm that was spun and woven to create this beautiful blanket. It will certainly keep you warm on a stormy winters eve and can stand at the ready in your cozy bedchamber.
It is a simplistic textile boasting an indigo blue window pane check that does not overwhelm but is still stylish and charming. There are areas that have small holes sprinkled throughout at random as shown. A portion of the blanket on the front has some small stains as referenced in images 7, 8, 9 & 10. There is also some staining on the back that seems to form a small cluster as referenced in image 28. A couple areas show some loose ends on the edge as referenced in image 24 while the other edges have light fraying sprinkled at random.
Fancy scalloped stitching done in blue thread appear on the fringed edge as well as the top edge as shown in images 11 & 28. The sides possess a “salvaged edge” so to speak. The care instructions state “Dry Clean Only”.
Overall this textile is in good condition without any obtrusive holes or large stains to report. This warm textile can be folded up at the end or your bed to achieve a layered look or can even be draped over a couch or chair for easy access when the weather turns bitterly cold. An outdoor chair or porch swing is another alternative that would be a great choice to make good use of this historical blanket during the autumn months. The versatility of this textile can instantly provide a cozy and inviting look in your homestead without delay. Enjoy!
Blanket measures a generous 89” tall by 68” wide.
