About the edition
A new 100% superfine Cashmere wool blanket by artist Sanya Kantarovsky, produced by master Scottish craftspeople. The double–sided knitting technique achieves a design–rich finish. The front face of the blanket showcases the Kantarovsky's artwork, whilst a colourful birdseye pattern is achieved on the underside. The blanket has a noticeably soft handle and luxurious heavyweight feel.
