100% sheep wool with cotton warp

The texture of this blanket is luxuriously soft to touch! It's incredible that it's actually made out of wool. Perhaps the smooth texture is a result of increased appreciation for touch by the blind weavers who handmade this blanket.

The stripes are woven with dusty pink and smoky lavender chenille yarns.

This is a rare wool item that you can be happy to feel against your skin, both for its creamy softness and the fact that its purchase supports an altruistic organization of blind weavers in Morocco. Allow this blanket to warm your toes and your heart this winter!

  • This textile comes from a wonderful center: a Women’s Association for the Visually Impaired and Blind, whose official name in French is “Organization Alaouite pour la Protection des Aveugles.” 

    Located in Chefchaouen, Morocco and managed by an elderly man who went blind at the age of 20, the organization provides a way for visually impaired women to use weaving skills to gain confidence and financial independence. Having an active role in their communities allows the women to maintain their own sense of self-worth.
