This approximately 5 ft X 5 ft blanket is constructed of squares cut from used wool sweaters. I assembled a group of as many different sweaters as I could find that fit into this bright red pallet. The components are carefully cut and zig-zag stitched edge to edge creating a single plane that is nearly the same on both sides. All the raw material seams and the back sides of the origninal sweaters are on the back. You will find patches in contrasting colors. These details add interest and serve to cover imperfections on the surface.

It is soft and cozy. Great for keeping warm this winter. Edged in silky soft peacock silk satin.

Because I use used sweaters as raw material each blanket I make is individual - like the people who wore the sweaters to start with!
