Texaskillet's Shop Announcement

An Afghan is a blanket, wrap, or shawl of colored wool, knitted or crocheted in geometric shapes. Of course Afghans are also dogs: The Afghan Hound is a sighthound with an aristocratic bearing. Tall and slender with a long, narrow, refined head, silky topknot and powerful jaws.

In terms of etymology, it is likely that the wraps or shawls that came to be called afghans were originally patterned after textiles from the Afghanistan region. According to the Oxford English Dictionary, afghan "wrap, shawl" dates from 1833.


Now that you have the history, claim a little slice of heavenly nostalgia for yourself. These afghans are from many different sources, some have been previously loved and thusly saved, cleaned up and repaired for their forever homes. Give them a try - You'll be happy you did! Email me anytime for size inquiries! Note that the everywhere else ship price may change depending on your location. If you are not in the U.S. it would be best to email me first so we can get a good estimate for you.

Other shop areas are simply other interests I have. Found vintage treasures, things I have made, things other people made and I saved or repurposed.
