Snowshoe hare blanket

Jacquard wool blankets appeal to my interests in art, Native culture, and staying warm in the winter. My favorites have always been traditional Pendleton blankets, but recently I've discovered some nice designs from Faribault Woolen Mills in Minnesota. This one I had to have:

The coloration is slightly more subdued than the picture would indicate. The end stripes are a stonewashed-denim blue, providing a nice background for the stars/snowflakes. The grey is also a bit lighter, resulting in a more subtle contrast between the summer and winter hares.

I hunt cottontails, not snowshoe hares, but still... You gotta love a bunny blanket if you're a bunny hawker.

Honor the quarry. Always.
