Key Feature: Rare Green & Red Stripe edge
Vintage army blanket in lightweight grey wool. This blanket is unusual for a couple of reasons - firstly its red, green and black stripe edge. Army blankets are more commonly plain or red stripe only. The stripes are repeated three times top and bottom edges.
Secondly it has bright fluro reddy orange original blanket stitching (as voted to stay by you on Instagram/Facebook). This makes it quite unique! Stitching is not perfect but completely intact.
Single size measuring 162cm x 190cm.
No makers label, Wool has a slightly multi-fleck yarn typical of the earliest NZ Wool blankets. Dating this blanket at WWI - over 100years old. Wool is even all over and very light weight so would be best used as a prop for display, light usage or as a covering rather than heavy use.
If you are looking for a blanket for your vintage truck, army memorabilia or idea for covers in a van or industrial cool apartment this blanket would be perfect! Ready for another leg of its journey!
