This wool blanket from one of the Mainvil family ranches (either in California or Idaho) is composed of three lengths of wool fabric stitched together. The first section is 71.5" long and is a cream and taupe flannel pattern with four thin blue stripes running widthwise at both ends of the piece. The second section is 29" long and is for the most part a slightly darker cream color. There are 8 darker stripes running widthwise across one end. The third section is 69" long and the same color pattern as the first section. Both ends of the blanket have a solid cream edging roughly hand-stitched on with white thread.
