Red Sample Blanket

After several days inside the loom tying 1200 knots, the beam is set up and the sample blanket is woven.

I'm branching out more than usual with this sample. I realize that many of my customers, especially customers that buy red, want something intense and unusual. Alrighty, then! Here we go!

The most unusual of all, though, is that stripe of pure unsaturated brown in the center. From far away it looks brown. Up close, the red makes the brown look green, and the effect is strange and marvelous. The overall result a fairly subdued cloth that is surprisingly intense up close.
