Squaring Up, Amoeba, and Fractal Maze are "stretch wovens." The technology used to create these beautiful throws is our exclusive patented process that we used for many years in our light weight sweaters. In fact, these patterns were also sweaters before they became throws. The fabrics are a combination of wool and rayon chenille with a bit of Lycra added to achieve a puckered appearance - creating a cuddly, soft throw that is luxurious with a weighty drape. The throws are “double faced jacquards” so each side of the throw is the inverse of the other. The 5" border is constructed of two pieces of fabric, showing the inverse of the pattern on each side of the throw.
