About the product 

Made from 100% superfine Geelong in a Jacquard knit technique. 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 underside. The blanket has a noticeably soft handle and luxurious heavy weight, perfect for those cold winter nights.
