The 8/2 Orlon is a great choice for baby blankets: it is stain resistant, machine washable and dryable, and the fringe holds up well even with multiple washings. It makes a lightweight blanket, perfect for a spring or summer baby. The design combines 4 harness rosepath/twill structure with dramatic stripes in both the warp and weft. The sett and beat are 20 threads per inch.
