Sun and Sky Blanket
Handwoven in four strips of saturated color, this 4' x 6' blanket is also hand stitched to join the strips together and to hem the finished piece. Lightweight, warm, and glowing like a sunny sky, this blanket will bring warm summer joy into your cozy winter den. The blues are from my studio-grown Japanese indigo and the yellows are from apple bark from winter prunings. Each color was dyed on both a white and grey base yarns, creating a vibrant and a shadow panel of each tone. Visually tying the panels together are ice blue and dark olive selvedge stripes and contrasting hairline stripes.
I began this piece before the sunny yellow and sky blue of the Ukrainian flag was being flown in solidarity around the world. Now that this blanket is ready to go out in the world, the color symbolism calls for recognition and action. I will be donating 10% of the proceeds from this sale to a humanitarian relief fund working to keep Ukrainians safe this winter.
