blanket (clothing: outerwear); textile

Rectangular cream-coloured, tabby-woven, woollen blanket decorated with sets of blue and brown bands of varying width. At the centre is a thinner blue band divided by 2 brown and cream lines, and framed by brown bands. The brown warp shows through the textile, particularly in the damaged areas. Lengthwise along the middle is a thin stripe varying in thickness which suggests that 2 halves were sewn together.
