Tucuman Brushed Wool Blanket
This rug was woven on a traditional by Hugo Astorgas (pictured below) in Amaicha del Valle, Tucuman, Argentina. He uses a large traditional loom to make his creations. The color palette features all-natural undyed virgin sheep wool.
The wool is brushed using a wooden contraption after it is woven to give it a looser, fluffier texture than the tightly woven wool carpets. The blanket includes frills on three sides, with the fourth edge left purposefully smooth for the head.
