Antique Scottish Crofters Narrow Loom Blanket
Antique Scottish Crofters Narrow Loom Blanket Scotland Early 20th Century
An incredible antique Scottish blanket, woven on a 19th century narrow loom in two pieces which are then joined in the middle. Originally used in crofts in the remote Outer Hebrides, it is unusual to find pieces that have survived and most definitely unusual to find them so intact. This piece is of exceptional size, traditionally constructed so as to be able to wrap completely under the mattress to keep the heat in. On a Cream Hebridean wool base with rich black woven stripes this piece is in perfect condition. A real find.
