GREY BLANKET WITH ORANGE SILK COCOONS

This blanket is made with woven merino wool from NearSea Naturals and silk cocoons. I hand dyed the merino wool light grey, I also hand dyed the silk cocoons orange. Then I sewed the silk cocoons onto the fabric in a grid with 6 lines in the upper half closer together. This blanket is 38″ x 80″.
