About the artwork
A limited edition lambswool blanket by John Booth, exclusively for House of Voltaire. Each blanket is made in Scotland from 100% superfine lambswool using jacquard knit. This double–sided knitting style achieves a design–rich finish; the front of the blanket showcases the artist’s design, while a birdseye pattern, driven by the technique, is achieved on the underside. The blanket has a luxurious, heavyweight feel.
