DIMENSIONS & WEIGHT ☞ 3.5 Point is equal to a twin size mattress. The blanket is displayed on a queen size bed in the provided photos.
CONDITION ☞ Item has been very gently laundered by a previous owner sometime over the last 100 years, as you can see by the softened texture of the wool. It has approximately 3 small worn spots which someone has taken the time to darn, so they couldn't get any bigger (please see photos #7 & 8, additional photos can be provided if needed). No staining, smells or any other noticeable faults in the blanket. Remarkably soft compared to most other HBC wool blankets we have in stock!
You can tell that someone truly loved this blanket to keep it in such great condition over the years, and now it's looking for it's next "forever" home. We understand that this is an investment antique piece so if you have any questions or would like to see more photos, please don't hesitate to send us a message!
