Wool Throw - $190.00Imagine yourself curled up with a good book, keeping toasty under your wool throw. Or maybe the image you prefer is taking a nap on lazy Sunday afternoon, snuggled up under your warm new blanket. Either way, the fact remains, you will be warm and cozy under your wool throw.
Do you know someone who is always cold? Give them a handwoven gift that will warm more than just their heart. Unlike the typical department store throw, they will be able to warm both their nose and their toes when covered by one of these generous wool throws. Not to mention, there is room for two underneath.
The designs for these handwoven, wool throw blankets can be found in a pattern book published in Germany in 1895. Franz Donat's, "Large Book of Textile Patterns" has a multitude of wonderful patterns. One of my interests is taking historic patterns and creating handwoven heirlooms for today. I am looking forward to weaving more of throws like this!
Each handwoven throw is made from 100% wool. The warp for the thick, wool throw is a three-ply wool set at 8 threads per inch. A colored, two-ply wool is used for the weft. You can see a wool throw in the process of being woven on my home Page.
Care of Wool Throw
