About the edition
A 100% superfine Cashmere wool blanket in a Jacquard knit technique by artist Camille Henrot. This double-sided knitting style achieves a design rich finish. The front face of the blanket showcases the artist’s design, whilst a birdseye pattern, driven by the knitting style is achieved on the underside.
