The Quality – soft, durable, and lightweight, the combination of a tight two-ply weave and tear-resistant duck canvas edging produces a warm yet breathable throw that is the perfect size for two average humans or one superhuman.

Tapestry artists, including Chuck Close, use this same technique to produce large scale, photorealistic wall art.
