Organic wool blanket for King size bed for the Bridge Farm by Village Weaver



King Size wool blanket
The blanket for The Bridge Farm in Dresden Maine is completed! Didn't it turn out wonderful?
It is organic beautiful wool woven in a twill weave . Hand woven blanket has two panels sewn together to get the width for the blanket
I had sewed the seam .
The owners wanted an edge that was fringed. I stay stitched the edges to keep them from unraveling.
When the yarn was spun it had an oil used to keep control of the spinning. I washed the wool after it was sewn and it bloomed with a lovely heather brown and grey full yarn. Not too thick or heavy. It didn't even smell "sheepy " the wool when it was wet.
I will deliver the blankets to the farm and they are going to have them on display at their open house on Dec 1. Call before going to be sure.
They will have their beautiful animals in the field and goodies for sale.
