This antique blanket is backed and quite heavy. The weave is not as tight as it once would have been and is very soft from use. These blankets are woven by mothers for their daughters and handed down from one generation to the next. Today, these antique textiles are much sought after by collectors. The overall condition is very good with no tears, major stains or holes. The hemp border is slightly discolored in places.
