Description: Moki blankets are those that have alternating bands of brown and indigo blue. This later version of a moki has no indigo but instead a carded grey yarn to alternate with the bands of natural brown wool. The pattern of breaking down the moki with other elements has a dramatic effect. Two, large diamonds make up the pattern and these diamonds are each centered with a cross of sorts. A red dye is used to complement the stepping pattern of the diamonds. The blanket is bordered on each end with two bands, one of gold/orange and purple. The wool is soft and feels just as a blanket should.
Condition: Condition is excellent. Both sides are strong and equal in color. It is amazing to have the purple dye survive without hardly any fading.
