100% sheep wool with cotton warp

9 x 5.5 feet

This large handwoven wool blanket in universal white is long enough to double up for double the warmth.

While the blanket is free of decoration, a close look reveals that the yarn contains a range of subtle colors that contribute to the beauty and texture occurring naturally in the handmade process. You may even find traces of plant fiber that caught in the sheep's coat as it grazed the Moroccan hillsides.

This is a blanket that heats you twice: with its cozy wool fibers and with the reminder of its handmade origin in an altruistic organization of blind weavers. 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.
