Merino Textura has double the texture. Not only is the yarn thick and thin, but it is two-toned, giving it both a physical and visual texture. With that kind of temptation afoot, we had to make something and make something big. We chose a blanket and went for a simple design, just stripes woven in twill, but that simplicity let the texture shine in a pebbly, dappled surface. The warp is striped with five colors of Merino Textura, sett at 10 epi. It is woven with the same color sequence in the weft. The finished blanket measures approximately 30" x 60.5" plus fringe. It can be hand washed and air dried after a short tumble in the dryer.
You will need:
- 36.25" weaving width

- 10 dent reed
