Colour Block Blankets
Four contrasting colour blocks form the decorative overall pattern of the Colour Block Blankets by Hella Jongerius. This snug blanket is made of Peruvian highland wool from a hybrid breed of sheep: a cross between a Merino, whose wool is extremely soft, and a Corriedale, which is known for its sturdy fibres.
