Hand Made Woven 100% Wool Blanket from the high mountain village of Momostenango, Guatemala. This wonderful 100% Wool blanket is a treasure. It measures 86" x 62" with a 5" fringe on each end and is in excellent condition. The colors are a natural tan, blue and gray in a Mayan geometrical pattern with fringe. The blankets are thick soft and incredibly warm to fend off the nighttime cold in the highlands. It is new, never been used and still retains the wonderful aroma of natural lanolin. On my recent trip to the Guatemalan Western Highlands I purchased several of these wonderful blankets directly from the weaver. In Mayan society it is the men who weave the wool blankets. It is a sad fact that they are making less and less hand woven items. As the Mayan culture is becoming "modernized" the old traditions of hand woven textiles of natural fibers is disappearing.\
