I had the pleasure of seeing and touching this a-maz-ing, handwoven, 100% merino wool blanket by tina ratzner a few weeks ago. The sustainable story behind it is wonderful. The sheep that makes the wool, are bred in a biodynamic system. The soaps and spinning oils are biodegradable. The dyes used to make the color, contain no heavy metals. The list goes on and on. Which is all very fine and good. But on top of all that goodness is the absolutely stunning softness and construction of this blanket. Well it's actually 2 blankets, "connected" through little strips of jacquarding throughout the pattern and totally reversible. And then there is the perfect color and design. A sophisticated, handcrafted plaid, made with the dustiest sage, the warmest cream and a beautiful, burnished coral. Oh my goodness, did I have to resist buying this beauty. The price is steep and for now, too steep for me. But maybe one day, because truth be told, I can't get this blanket out of my head. What a gem!
