Tuesday blanket

The combinations and richness of colours in old blankets are great. Everyone had blankets when I was young- duvets were European and not part of NZ bed ware. I had four blankets in the middle of winter and one in the middle of summer. And the obligatory candlestick bedspread.

Today I found this blanket. I like the labels too, showing how wide spread the woollen industry was throughout NZ. I especially like labels that have a Maori motif on them.

I have far too many blankets, but here are a few of my favourites.
