Blanket + Leather Carrier

New to the Emporium!!
Called steamer rugs during the early 20th century,
these blankets were a warm, welcome companion
for those who traveled by horse-drawn carriage,
train or boat. Today they are still made from the
finest 100% pure virgin wool and are woven in the
same Northwest US mills. Ideal for warm summer
picnics, crisp autumn football games, stowing in
the car for unexpected adventures, or just curling
up at home. Each throw comes with a convenient
leather carrier with handle and shoulder strap.
52" x 66" plus fringe.
