This afghan is hand embroidered with an intricate pattern in a traditional style and backed with soft minky fabric. This style of work, called huck embroidery or Swedish weaving, leaves little to be seen on the back - just occasional glimpses of color where the threads of the cloth separate. It measures approximately 50 by 62 inches, though we do carry a smaller (30x50) size, perfect for baby blankets: https://www.broideriestitch.com/products/hand-embroidered-throw-blanket-afghan-in-mosaic
This sofa throw is made out of creamy, unbleached monk's cloth, which is a thick, 100% cotton cloth, and lined with minky, a poly fabric with a velvety feel. The embroidery is done with four colors of Peruvian wool, ranging from gold through apple green, teal, and a deep blue. We carry a beautiful selection of rich wool yarns, both plain and heathered (containing filaments of other, harmonizing colors within the yarn itself) for a rich depth of color. White monk's cloth is also available.

This blanket has been pre-washed to shrink the cotton and tighten the weave. To keep the wool stitching clearly defined, please hand wash with a mild detergent.
