Designer Maija Isola had a dream about running with wild horses in the forest, and was inspired to create this folkloric print. Fittingly named Musta Tamma (Black Mare), it depicts beautiful horse running among apples. Reversible, you'll find the same design on the other side, but in an inverse colorway of beige, brown, and turquoise blue. Made from recycled cotton and linen, it's lightweight enough to be used as a wall tapestry but also will be a useful cover-up on cool summer nights. Fringed edges add to the cozy appeal.
Care: Machine washable. Follow instructions on tag.

I am happy with this blanket. It's a good weight to throw over your lap when you get a bit chilled. The delightful image is pure Marimeko. While I won't let the grandchildren build forts with it, it should be durable enough when used as intended
Beautifully made blanket

The construction of this blanket is tricky. Parts of the design are woven as one piece and other parts are separated. The brown background is one piece of fabric and the horse and apples are two pieces of fabric. The instructions are for dry cleaning I suspect to maintain the quality of the weaving because the fabric separates in areas of the horse and apples. It is so striking I have currently put it on my dining room table with art pieces as accents. The white horse has more ripples and the dark horse has fewer ripples. I treat the blanket as an art piece and love the blanket ripples and all.
Stunning art piece can be used as a hanging or table cover. Too fine for a throw, I think, because of the unusual weaving technique used to made the blanket. This item should be treated with love.
Dry clean suggested. Iron carefully....those ripples on the horse...
