custom woven throws

A beautiful addition to your sofa for naps or take along to a local winery, brewery, restaurant or your own backyard or balcony. This custom designed and woven throw is large enough to wrap up in but light enough to carry easily. Different twill patterns and variegated yarns make each of the 50 throws unique, but of a family. Hand twisted fringes and fulling will keep the throw looking great for years. Gift worthy, it comes in a box with Chesapeake Fibershed product checklist.

Because of the hand work to finish the fringes and full, we will sell throws as they are available plus you can pre-order for different ship dates as we estimate we can have them ready.

Primarily undyed white and natural color wool, about 15% of the fibers as woven were dyed in the wool with weak acid dyes to create a variegated yarn that gives each throws a distinctive and unique undulating pattern. Woven by Bedfellows Blankets in Massachusetts on old industrial looms with 16 harnesses. Twill patterns give the throws lovely drape & design.

Hand twisted fringes and fulling will keep the throw good looking through the years. Very limited number of overdyed throws occasionally available.
