Double-cloth blankets.

These blankets take their inspiration from the basic characteristics of traditional Welsh double-cloth. My aim was to re-interpret the technique in a contemporary way which would raise awareness of this rapidly disappearing, historic practice. Woven on a 16 shaft mechanical dobby loom, each of the four merino lambswool blankets have been carefully finished with blanket stitching.
