The blankets’ patterns are drawn by hand, so they are irregular and unique throughout. To capture the organic feel of skin, Nienke worked with natural materials like mohair, linen and cotton. In the grey blanket a fill yarn was used, to give the blanket its thickness and relief. After weaving the grey blankets were steamed with a steaming iron, which activates the fill yarn. A hand-sewn silk border finishes the blankets.
The blanket can be used as a throw on the bed of couch. It’s warm and comfy, because of the natural materials and layers.
