Key Feature: Sensational colour accents
Stunning double weave vintage car rug in superb condition. Main base colour of rose based taupe with accent colours of dark brown, cream, butter lemon, cherry red, tiny accent of purple and the most amazing bright teal.
These Car Rugs are very heavy, there was no scrimping on materials when making a quality product. This blanket weighs almost 2kg!
This blanket is made of very fine wool, spun into a very fine yarn and then densely woven (and brushed too I think). Woven with a double weave technique it is effectively two blankets woven at once.
Blanket is dense and firm (this blanket is approx 3mm solid) which makes it quite firm but no prickle factor at all. The overall feeling is smooth and almost felted. The density would make it quite water resistant too.
So in usage terms not the type of blanket you would cosy up in though you could probably survive some pretty harsh temperatures if you did! This type of blanket is best for outdoor picnics, part of a car or vintage display, to cover over a lovely big couch or protect the surface of a polished table - as a few ideas.
This blanket is at 130cm x 154cm.
Tassels top and bottom edges.
No makers label but we can confirm this blanket is 100% New Zealand wool and made in New Zealand.
