Description

Handmade in South Africa

The Basotho heritage blankets are made using a vertical manufacturing process. The 50% wool and 50% Draylon blended yarn are spun in-house, then woven using state-of-the-art jacquard weave technology into the finest quality Basotho blankets. The blankets are completed using a wet finishing process – they are washed after weaving and then finished in a wet state.

The Kharetsa is named after the spiral aloe which is only found in the Maluti Mountains of Lesotho. The aloe is prominently featured in the center of the design, surrounded by iconic Basotho hat and shield motifs.

Measurements 61″ x 65″
